Asclepias incarnata (Apocynaceae)
(as-KLEP-ee-as in-kar-NAY-ta)
Pink Swamp Milkweed

Beautiful and uniquely bicolored flowers of white and deep pink form globular clusters atop upright, multi-stemmed plants in midsummer. Long, tapered leaves are more delicate than some of the more ‘leathery’ species of Asclepias. Swamp Milkweed grows best in moist locations — as the name implies — but tolerates average well-drained garden sites.
