Swamp Milkweed

SKU: 130053 Categories: ,


One of the most beautiful of native perennials with clusters of upturned 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.
