Native Perennial/Wildflower

The nectar in all milkweed flowers provides valuable food for butterflies, bees, and other pollinators. Butterflies don’t only need nectar, but also need food at the caterpillar stage. The leaves of milkweed plants (Asclepias spp.) are the ONLY food that monarch caterpillars can eat!

Wildlife Benefits: Like other milkweeds, swamp milkweed attracts large numbers of pollinators, particularly native bees. 12 species of butterfly and moth use this plant as larval host, including the Monarch butterfly. Other Practical/Environmental Benefits: Takes up space that might otherwise be filled by weeds!
