Swamp Milkweed ‘Soulmate’
Out of stock
One of the most beautiful of native perennials with clusters of upturned deep rose-pink flowers in June and July. Much underused in average garden conditions! Attracts butterflies of all kinds. Willow-like leaves are 4-5″ long. Occurs in floodplains and wet meadows. The leaves of the Red Milkweed are a preferred food source of Monarch caterpillars. Preferring moist soils, this is a great plant for naturalizing in roadside ditches, detention basins, and other wet soils that often dry out in summer.
Asclepias incarnata 'Soulmate'
Prefers consistently moist soil, but performs admirably in average, well-drained gardens as well.
Green willow-like leaves.
Deep pink flowers bloom in summer.
