Swamp milkweed grows 4-5 feet tall and has clusters of pinkish-purple buds that open to invite butterflies July to August. This native to the eastern U.S. tolerates clay soil, wet soil, and deer, naturalizes, and is fragrant! Aesculapius - the Greek god of medicine; incarnate - flesh-colored (well, maybe a very rosy flesh!) Its native to North American swamps and wet meadows, but will tolerate less water.
