Swamp milkweed is another well-behaved native milkweed which grows between 18 and 24 inches tall and has pink or white blooms in the summer. This plant provides food for monarch butterfly caterpillars, but many pollinators visit it for nectar. It looks especially nice with purple flowers or with native grasses.
Purple spikes of tubular flowers enliven the spring garden and attract bumblebees. This hardy perennial will grow to be about 24 inches high and 36 inches wide.
You can protect pollinators!
Limit or don’t use pesticides, plant flowers that provide nectar and pollen and extend the blooming season by deadheading old flowers to produce new flowers. You can provide trees, shrubs and ground-covers for shelter, learn more about pollinators, and more!
