Swamp Milkweed is a native perennial that grows to about 4’ tall and is very showy. Similar to common milkweed in structure, it blooms slightly later which allows for a longer milkweed blooming season. Like other Asclepias, this is a larval host to the Monarch butterfly, and is pollinated by many other butterflies and bees as well. We’ve had at least 15 Monarch Caterpillars on a single plant in our micro-prairie. It has gorgeous pink/white blooms that are long lasting (~ 1 month).
