Initial Notes:Free from Hilliard spring trade
This plant bloomed 2006
Leaves much smaller than Common Milkweed, but it did attract Monarchs to lay eggs on it in 2006. The last Monarch larva of the year was found on an almost completely faded Swamp Milkweed leaf. I brought him inside and fed him Common Milkweed (only 1 plant still alive). Macaela took him to SC with her in late OCT. and her class released him.
