Description

Watch the butterflies and hummingbirds will flock to your garden! They’ll absolutely feast on the sweet nectar of this easy-to-grow, heirloom perennial. Often called swamp milkweed, this species grows best in moist or wet soils, such as near a pond or stream, but the loosely-clumped plants also grow well in a garden with regular watering. Decorative seed pods are beautiful in dried arrangements. Soak seeds overnight to aid germination. Deer-resistant. Caution: The milky sap may cause dermatitis in sensitive individuals.
