Our Swamp Milkweed Collection is the perfect start to your butterfly garden, rain garden, stream bed, or anywhere you want to see beautiful flowers and pollinators in wet soil. Pink and white flowers on tall stems with lovely long green leaves look beautiful in large plantings, or paired with other tall perennials. In fall, look for plentiful silky-haired seeds. Asclepias incarnata (also known as Rose Milkweed) is a native perennial, and the sole host plant of Monarch Butterflies. In time, these deer resistant plants will spread and naturalize to help your pollinator garden grow! Collection of 3 plants.

The ‘Swamp Milkweed Collection’ features a trio of long-lived native perennials with pink and white flowers. Asclepias, or Milkweed, are sun loving plants that are essential perennials for monarch butterflies providing food for caterpillars and nectar for adult butterflies. They bloom from mid-summer into early fall and, with their milky sap, are resistant to rabbits and deer. 'Rose' Swamp Milkweed will spread more slowly that its relatives, making it a better candidate to include in traditional perennial garden beds. Milkweed can be slow-growing, and slow to wake up from dormancy in spring, but these long-lived perennials are essential for the survival of monarch butterflies, and long-lived once established! We highly recommend giving these beauties a place in your garden. Mature plants range from 36-48" tall x 24-36” wide.

Our Swamp Milkweed Collection comes with 3 plants (1 of each) and covers approximately 12 square feet when planted together.
