Swamp Milkweed is an upright native perennial often found in swamps, rivers, and wet meadows with green lance-like leaves.  Tight clusters of small, fragrant flowers come in shades of pink and mauve and bloom in late spring to summer.   Performs best in full sun and moist to wet soils, but can tolerate average soils.  The milky sap released from damaged stems is toxic if ingested.

Asclepias are the sole host plants for the Monarch Butterfly, and also hosts the Queen Butterfly and various moth larva.  The nectar provides for various pollinators and attracts hummingbirds.

Within a few days of our order, we had beautiful, healthy plants delivered to our yard. Talk about a pleasant surprise to have everything we asked for unloaded and waiting for us when we were ready to plant without having to leave the house.

An amazing resource for plants, advice and landscape expertise. ServScape designed a rooftop garden for me which included the design, sourcing the planting materials, and installation, including a small irrigation system.

My order exceeded expectations last summer! Plus everything in pots and in the ground came back bigger and better early this spring.
