Asclepias incarnata - Swamp Milkweed

If you frequent wetland or wet edge areas, you are likely to see this beautiful pink flower mid-summer. Swamp, Marsh or Pink Milkweed is an important pollinator plant and one of the host milkweeds for the Monarch Butterfly larva.

Once done blooming, the familiar milkweed pods form. These will split open in the fall to release the seed which attached to it's pappus, flies on the wind to carry it's genetic material to a new place.

Found from all but the west coast states east to the Atlantic ocean, and from Mexico up into Canada.
