Rating:
95% of 100

Perennial. Rosy-pink-flowered milkweed that is the best choice for moist locations, as it is native to wet ground throughout much of North America. Supports the Monarch and other butterfly populations as well as bees and hummingbirds. The sweet vanilla fragrance and large numbers of flowers support the gardener’s enjoyment, as well. May reach 5 feet tall in favored locations. CAUTION: The milky sap is poisonous if ingested in large quantities, and contact with the skin may cause dermatitis in sensitive individuals.
