This Milkweed is a native to Eastern North America and can reach up to four feet tall. It has slim leaves that reach up to six inches and attractive looking clusters of pinkish purple flowers. There is a lovely white variety that is called ‘Ice Ballet.’ These beauties got the name Swamp Milkweed because they can handle more moisture in their environment than the other Milkweeds. If you have an area in your garden that holds a little extra water, Swamp Milkweed is a plant that peeks curiosity and invites ‘garden’ conversation.
