Swamp Milkweed
Swamp Milkweed (Asclepias incarnata) is a herbaceous plant species native to North America. It is found growing in damp to wet soils and is also cultivated as a garden plant for its attractive flowers that are visited by butterflies. Like most other milkweeds, it has sap with toxic chemicals, used to repel insects and herbivorous animals.Photo credit: Derek Ramsey
