Swamp Milkweed

Swamp Milkweed

Asclepias Incarnata

This deer-resistant plant grows best in full sun and moist soil, but will tolerate average soils and blooms for about a month mid-summer.  Later, large pods form which will break open to reveal seeds that will float away in the wind. It typically grows 3-4′ tall. If growing Rose Milkweed from seed, try fall planting – or if planting in spring be sure to first moist-cold stratify the seeds for a month.
