Incarnata Butterfly Flower

Description
Butterfly flower, or milkweed, is the only plant that monarch butterflies lay eggs on. Use it to draw these gorgeous butterflies in and enjoy their contribution to your garden aesthetic. It's also just a fantastic plant—a carefree native perennial that flowers freely through summer. It carries a subtle fragrance and exciting brightly colored flower clusters that turn into pretty seed pods. It's tall and graceful, perfect for a back border. Asclepias incarnata is Swamp Milkweed, so it'll thrive around a stream, pond or an area water tends to collect in your garden. You should also collect some stems full of blooms or seed pods for fresh or dried bouquets. Asclepias incarnata
