An excellent native milkweed species for growing in clay soil and wet areas. Native to much of the U.S., this durable species is clump forming with a deep taproot. Vanilla scented, pink flowers provide nectar for bees and other pollinators for several months; decorative seed pods follow in fall.
Highly sought after in today's market. Critical host for monarchs and other butterflies, and an important food source for native bees. Clusters of glowing orange flowers top drought tolerant plants for months; decorative seed pods in fall. Short habit stays neat in containers.
