Swamp Milkweed Plants

Asclepias incarnata ' Milkweed'

This asclepias is known for its showy pink and fragrant blooms - large clusters of deliciously vanilla scented flowers that grow on sturdy stems. This asclepias makes a dramatic statement in the garden or perennial border.

Asclepias incarnata, Swamp or Rose Milkweed

Asclepias incarnata Swamp Milkweed is also known as 'Rose Milkweed', this deer resistant plant grows in moist to average soils, and blooms in July and August. A popular source of nectar for monarch butterflies as well as other pollinators, you will be amazed at how many 'guests' this plant attracts to its blooms!

This is a native plant, and although a bit slow to emerge (so remember to give it time in the spring!), it will reward you with a fast growing and long blooming plant. Once the blooms are gone, there will be interesting pods filled with seeds that will eventually be scattered by the wind.

5 of 5 Rough start but doing well June 18, 2019
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Swainsboro, GA United States  
When I opened the box, all three were a little yellow.  Placed them in a shady area and watered.  One actually dropped all but two of it's leaves after that.  New leaves developed and all three plants are growing well.

Milkweed arrived in great condition and is doing well. No blooms yet, but I am hopeful for fall. I want to order more for the butterflies.
