Live Plant - Milkweed, Swamp


This item may be out of season or currently out of stock. Please check back.

Description: Milkweed plants are essential to Monarch butterflies, as the leaves are the only food source for Monarch caterpillars. Milkweed flowers are also a nectar source for Monarchs and other butterflies. This Manitoba-native species has showy pink blooms in mid-summer, followed by distinctive seed pods.

Although the words "samp" and "weed" appear in the name, Swamp Milkweed does just fine in average garden soil and is not particularly weedy in the home garden setting.
