This moisture-loving perennial native milkweed creates a large, lovely compound flower with a deep rose color and sweet-spicy fragrance. Very attractive to a wide range of pollinators, including bees and butterflies. In a sunny, moist spot with rich soil, it can grow up to 6' tall, with slender eract stems and narrow, pointed leaves. Not drought tolerant. Deer rarely eat milkweeds due to their acrid taste.
