Swamp, Marsh or Pink Milkweed is an important pollinator plant and one of the host milkweeds for the Monarch Butterfly larva.If you frequent wetland or wet edge areas, you are likely to see this beautiful pink flower mid-summer.

Once done blooming, the familiar milkweed pods form. These will split open in the fall to release the seed which attached to it's pappus, flies on the wind to carry it's genetic material to a new place.

Found from all but the west coast states east to the Atlantic ocean, and from Mexico up into Canada.

Seed Envelopes contain approximately 0.02 ounces of seed and cover about 5 to 10 square feet.
