More stuff of my backyard

Here's a very small snail! I wish I knew experts in every field of biology, but probably even the most well-informed malacologist would say "dunno. subadult, terrestrial gastropod. shell coils on right hand side."

This is clearly some kind of orange-flowered perennial milkweed, planted by people who owned the house before us. When I google "orange milkweed" I get hits for Asclepias tuberosa also called "butterfly milkweed" (a little redundant, no?) which occurs in 3/4 of the US, but is on the endangered list in several New England states. Anyone actually know what it is?
