Similar to but less imperialistic than common milkweed (Asclepias syriaca), showy milkweed is also more -- well -- showy in flower, bearing large fragrant heads of antique pink monarch-seducing blooms.  Great in sunny wildflower plantings and cottage gardens.

Full to part sun; average to dry soil (drought tolerant); 3'x3'; late spring to summer; Zone 4

Propagated from seed; deep 3.5-inch pots
