Hummingbirds are occasional visitors too. Important plant for monarch larvae - monarch butterfly caterpillars have the highest survival and growth rates on this particular milkweed.

Growing 3'-4' feet tall and wide, this perennial needs full sun to half shade and can take, but does not require, boggy conditions - it will grow fairly well in average moist soils. US hardiness zones 3-9. Native wildflower to Northeastern and southeastern United States.

Deer, clay and boggy soil tolerant perennial for sunny borders, pollinator and butterfly gardens, or streams, pond banks and rain gardens. Easy to grow beneficial native plant.
