Description

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.
