Overview
Fragrant, rose-pink, nectar-rich flower clusters atop tall, sturdy stems give Swamp Milkweed a stately presence in the garden or meadow. A favorite of many pollinators, Milkweeds (Asclepias) are the host plant for Monarch butterflies, and the sweet pink blooms will be buzzing with activity. These impressive native wildflowers feature narrow, tapering foliage, and mid-to-late-summer blooms are followed by attractive seed pods that add interest to the fall garden. Thanks to its bitter milky sap, Milkweed is deer and rabbit resistant. (Asclepias incarnata)
