23 Feb Great Design Plant: Swamp milkweed (Asclepias incarnata) for a Butterfly Garden
Swamp milkweed (Asclepias incarnata) is one of my favorite milkweeds, says Benjamin Vogt, a Houzz Contributor. Vogt continues, it’s a well-behaved, clumping stunner that brings in far more monarch eggs than other gardenworthy species I’ve tried. With wintering monarch numbers in Mexico for 2015 at their second lowest ever, and many government and nonprofit programs revving up to provide more native plant habitat for monarchs and other pollinators, swamp milkweed should be a staple in your butterfly garden.
