|Description||A must-have for sunny, wildlife-friendly gardens! Showy, rose-pink flowers are sweetly scented, clustered above tall stems with lush leaves, blooming throughout summer. Interesting seed-pods often persist into winter. This North American native tolerates swampy, boggy conditions, and may naturalize in wetland settings. An herbaceous perennial.|
|Watering||Keep soil moist, but not soggy.|
|Blooms||Mid to Late Summer|
|Mature Size||Quickly reaches 3 to 4 ft. tall, 1 to 3 ft. wide.|
|Care||Thrives in average soils with consistent moisture, even boggy conditions and standing water. Water deeply, regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system. For a tidy appearance, remove old, faded foliage before new leaves emerge. Divide clumps every 2 to 3 years in early spring.|
|Lore||The milkweed family of North American plants is named Asclepias after Asklepios, the famous Greek God of Medicine, since the plants have long been used in herbal medicine. Asclepias incarnata is a favored host plant of monarchs and swallowtails.|
