Asclepias perennis (White Swamp Milkweed or White Aquatic Milkweed) grows 1-2ft tall. Larval host to the monarch butterfly, queen butterfly, and soldier butterfly. Clusters of white flowers attract bees and butterflies and bloom spring-fall. Tolerates wet sites, but also does well in general landscape situations.

This is so hard to find I was delighted to acquire one and will order more. Many of the natives I like are drought tolerant and I needed one that could take some watering as it's by the sprinkler. I planted it right away and as luck would have it we've had a rainy week but it's doing great and is already blooming. Evidently it can take the water. I am planting for butterflies and bees and want good natives - and neonicitonoid free for the bees. Very happy with it and will order more when it is available. I live in NW Florida panhandle.
My order was shipped promptly, the plants were carefully packaged with a strong root system and healthy plants. I planted them the day they arrived and they are both doing well. I plan to be a repeat customer.
