The literal meaning of the Myaamia word for milkweed means puppy--possibly a name for the seedling of the dogbane plant that would have been very similar in look to young shoots of the food plant, common milkweed, but unlike common milkweed, this species was not eaten.

Shoots of the smaller species of Asclepias or dogbane were not eaten for food. "[We] used green shoots of milkweed - don't use small purplish stem with slim-sharp pointed leaves" [indicating A. speciosa or possibly Apocynum cannabinum].
