Asclepias incarnata 'Ice Ballet' (Apocynaceae)
(as-KLEP-ee-as in-kar-NAY-ta)
White Swamp Milkweed

Showy white flower clusters become a backdrop for colorful butterflies to really POP. Like the species, 'Ice Ballet' forms a bushy 3-5' clump—providing plenty of foliage for munching caterpillars. Does best in full sun and wet soils, but tolerant of average conditions.
