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 feet 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.
