Swamp Milkweed



Host plant for the Monarch butterfly, Swamp Milkweed has fuchsia, flat-top flowers with rose overtones from midsummer to early fall and is a showier variety of Common Milkweed. Extremely elegant, it is also an important native plant that many pollinators rely on, especially the struggling Monarch population. A wonderful addition to sunny border gardens, water features, or butterfly gardens.
