FLOWER, Swamp Milkweed
Seeds per pack ~ 60 Packed for 2024
Perennial, resilient and simply gorgeous, milkweed is critical food for Monarch caterpillars and so many other beneficial pollinators. Swamp milkweed smells of honey when they blossom, attracting countless butterflies and beneficial insects to their sticky sweet flower clusters. This milkweed is also edible to humans, especially the tasty flowers and flower buds (some eat the shoots as well). They're good mixed in with scrambled eggs or an omelet. Like all milkweeds, swamp milkweed contains a sticky white latex that some people may be sensitive to, so if you've never tried it we recommend starting slow.
