Plant Description

Pink Swamp Milkweed looks a lot like Butterfly Weed except that the mid-summer flowers are rosy pink and plants have a succulent texture. Growing 3 to 4 feet tall, this perennial needs full sun and can take, but does not require, boggy conditions. Pink swamp milkweed is a butterfly magnet. In fact, monarch butterfly caterpillars have the highest survival and growth rates on this particular milkweed.
