Swamp Milkweed, Asclepias incarnata
Sold in a strip of 5 deep plugs for $37.50 (that’s $7.50 per plant!)
These deep plugs allow for a large plant — up to 16” tall depending on the species and time of year — with a well-established, mature deep root system.
Each plug is 2” x 2” across, and 5” deep.
With lovely, light pink flowers, this southwestern PA native perennial is a larval host for monarch butterflies. Primarily found in wetlands and swamps in the wild, it is surprisingly tolerant of average draining soils as well. It is tall, reaching 5 feet and forms clumps with deep taproots. This is a great plant for sunny spots, especially interplanted with a wildflower mix. Summer blooms provide food for bees, butterflies and hummingbirds. It is fragrant and deer tolerant.
