Beyond its beautiful color and sweet scent, this compact milkweed tolerates moist soils and is a great choice for small-space gardens. Deer resistant. (Asclepias incarnata)

USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

  • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
  • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).

Plant Information

24-36" tall x 24-30" wide. ‘Soulmate’ blooms a deeper rose color than other swamp milkweeds and is a prolific bloomer. Plants tolerate a wide range of growing conditions including wet soils and clay. Despite growing naturally in swamps and wet meadows, ‘Soulmate’ also performs well in average garden soils. An excellent selection for rain gardens and butterfly habitats as well as perennial beds. ‘Soulmate’ charms with slender, willow-like foliage, a strong upright structure, and attractive seed pods. Harvest seed pods before they break open for use in dried flower arrangements. When left in the garden, pods break open to release silky white seeds that float on the breeze. Plants may reseed in the garden. With a broad native range, swamp milkweed makes an ideal monarch host plant throughout much of the continental United States and eastern Canada.
