    I ordered several plants. They came in good condition but the order was incorrect. Tn Nursery quickly corrected the order and I am very happy with the results.

Asclepias Incarnata- Swamp Milkweed For Sale Affordable Grower Direct Prices Tennessee Wholesale Nursery

Asclepias Incarnata- Swamp Milkweed is native to marshy, wet areas. It is most well known for its properties in attracting butterflies, specifically the monarch butterfly. The flower itself is light to dark purple with a long stem that holds the flower firmly in an upright position. Several smaller flowers will begin to branch off and bloom below the central flower, creating the standard milkweed look.

Swamp milkweed grows to be almost 60 inches tall, which is about 150 centimeters. The roots of the plant are thick and white. The leaves which branch out from the primary stem measure up to about six inches/15 centimeters. Unlike most flowers, the swamp milkweed blooms in Summer instead of Spring. The best place for these flowers to grow are damp soils that are in full sunlight. They can also do well in partial shade, but they will need a significant amount of sun. The moisture required for these plants to flourish typically only present on the edges of ponds, lakes and other bodies of water. Sometimes ditch lines are moist enough to grow the swamp milkweed.
