Be ready to feed the Monarchs! We have several varieties of Milkweed. This one is Asclepias incarnata. A. incarnata is commonly referred to as swamp milkweed because of its association with highly saturated soils in wetlands or areas that are flooded seasonally. Plants usually have a taproot with the root crown producing one to six or more stems each growing season. The flowers, which are said to give off a scent similar to cinnamon, are presented on medium sized erect umbels that tend to be flat. #garden #nj #monarch #butterfly #butterflies #milkweed #perennial #fullsun
