Common in open, moist to swampy environments, Rose Milkweed is a clump-forming milkweed with beautiful rose-colored blooms. The clumps are very well-behaved in the garden, not taking over aggressively like common milkweed. Plants grow 2-3 feet tall and attract many different butterflies, particularly monarchs which depend on Milkweeds as a larval host plant.
Plant Rose Milkweed 24-36 inches apart in moist soil - Common garden soil is tolerated as long as moisture remains available.
Plug flats are an economical way to plant large areas for a reasonable price - We currently grow Rose Milkweed in 50-cell deep plug flats.
