Butterflies and hummingbirds will flock to your garden to feast on the sweet nectar of this easy-to-grow, heirloom perennial. Often called swamp milkweed, this species grows best in moist or wet soils, such as near a pond or stream, but the loosely-clumped plants also grow well in a garden with regular watering. Decorative seed pods are beautiful in dried arrangements. Sap is toxic; avoid eye/skin contact and do not ingest.

We cannot ship this variety to Hawaii as per state regulations. Please do not order if your shipping address is in these states.

    I was initially skeptical of such a good deal but I forgot about these leaves in my mailbox for TWO DAYS and they were still in amazing shape! the smallest leaf I received was a little dehydrated and he might not make it but I totally assume responsibility for its likely demise. I received 4 different and really beautifully patterned leaf cuttings.
