This host plant for monarch butterfly caterpillars is abundant with small, rose-to-deep pink flowers that sit in clusters on branching stalks with narrow leaves.

Grown sustainably just for your area, this set of three Swamp Milkweed plants for sun/part-shade will:

• Support other wildlife species including birds, butterflies, moths, and bees
• Return each year
• Never need chemicals and require less water once established
• Are deer resistant, once established

Tan/brown seed pods will develop on stems in fall and remain into winter.


Did you know? The monarch butterfly (Danaus plexippus) that relies on native milkweed to survive has declined in population by 90%. By planting milkweed, you are restoring critical habitat for monarchs and making a real difference toward saving these iconic creatures!

This set of Red Swamp Milkweed plants also has the potential to support up to:

- 12 other butterfly species
- 96% of the backyard birds that rely on these larval insects to feed their young
- Dozens of other pollinator species foraging for nectar

All purchases support National Wildlife Federation’s non-profit mission to help declining wildlife and expand native plant availability nationwide.

Pre-Order Now - Shipping for this collection begins in late July.

Orders placed outside this time frame (pre-orders) will begin shipping once the shipping window is open.

See our Shipping Timeframes page for more detail.

When your order ships, you will receive an email from orders@gardenforwildlife.com with tracking information.

Also Includes: Garden design ideas and plant guidance from our pros.

Sizing: At the time of shipment, our plants have a developed root mass and emerging foliage around 4-8” high. The 3-plant set of Red Swamp Milkweed grows to fill a space up to about 2x3 feet; perfect for a small garden bed in the sun or part shade. These plants can also thrive in patio containers if planted one per large container.
