Monarch (or Swamp) Rose Milkweed (Asclepias incarnata) is the perfect addition to a consistently damp place in the garden, like a rain garden or alongside a stream. Her roots can handle the moisture, and her blooms bring in the Monarch butterflies, hummingbirds, and bees for a drink of nectar. Her scented flowers look like lacy shooting stars facing upward to hail down all manner of pollinators. Her height is tall enough to show off at 3-4 feet tall and 3 feet wide. She'll produce blooms from early to late summer. Enjoy her seed pods in the autumn as they send off fluffy seed pods for naturalization.

About Monarch Rose Milkweed

Interestingly much of the plant is turned into useful products. For instance, the silky hairs for the seed pods was once used during World War II to stuff pillows and mattresses. Stalks were turned into paper and muslin since their fiber has tensile strength. Native American Indians used the fiber as ropes and fish nets. Rubber can be made from the latex from the sap of the plant. They has also been used for medicine purposes to heal infections.
