In real lifeEdit

Common milkweed (Asclepias syriaca) shares milkweed's in-game appearance of tall stems with pink flowers; but this plant is native to North America and is also toxic.

Milkweed might be based on lavender (Lavandula angustifolia), which has tall stems with distinctively-scented blue-purple flowers. Lavender is edible and often used as a sedative herbal remedy, but usually considered native to Spain and the Mediterranean.

It is also possible that milkweed is a completely fictional plant, and the name is chosen simply to convey that the plant has milky white sap.

Milkweed is actually Chamerion angustifolium which has a milk related name in Finnish.[1]
