Common Milkweed – Pink
This native prairie wildflower has delicately fragrant flowers in June and July ranging in color from dusty white to pink-purple. Like its cousin Swamp Milkweed, the foliage provides food for the Monarch Butterfly larva while the adult butterflies will forage the flowers for pollen and nectar. In fall, seeds pods form that slowly crack open to release the wind-carried seeds. This drought tolerant perennial is great for naturalizing and a wonderful addition to the native landscape.
