Swamp Milkweed

Asclepias incarnata


One of our showiest species with flattened, brightly coloured white and pink flower heads at the tips of tall stems. Excellent nectar plant for many species of butterflies; foliage provides food for larval stages of the Monarch butterfly. Forms clumps and mounds. An excellent choice for wet or rain gardens.
