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.
