Milkweed, Swamp (Asclepias incarnata) - 50 Seeds
•American grown seeds
•USDA Zones: 2-11
These showy pink flowers give off a sweet scent similar to cinnamon or vanilla. Attractive to butterflies, this variety flourishes in swamps or along streams, so it's a great option for a butterfly plant in a wet setting. It's a staple of many wetland plantings.
In late fall, direct sow just below the surface. Germination will take place in the spring after the last frost. When the seedlings appear, thin to the strongest plant. Seedlings usually don't survive transplanting as they resent any disturbance of their roots. For spring planting, mix the seeds with moist sand and refrigerate for 30 days before direct sowing.
