Gay Butterflies milkweed hybrid, hybrid of what?

West Babylon, NY(Zone 7a)

It says plants are hybrids, but of what species? Originally they are orange, now they come in red,yellow,pink, and white. Will seeds produce mixed colored flowers?

I've never seen Gay Butterflies called a hybrid, just a selection of Asclepias tuberosa color variants. I'm growing some this year, but they haven't bloomed yet. Other people have been disappointed to get more orange or yellow than other colors from their seeds, but I thought it was worth trying some.
