Swamp Milkweed


One of the more successful perennials in our yard. They attract a lot of insects, including this tiny praying mantis. Insects provide a lot of entertainment for my kids.

According to Mrs. Grieve, an old-fashioned name for swamp milkweed aka Asclepias incarnata is rose silkweed. That sounds much more poetic and elegant.
