#ProPlantTips For Care

Provide your Soulmate Swamp Milkweed with a full sun location! They love the full sun, but they can tolerate some afternoon shade. This is perfect for any yard location.

This milkweed is pretty adaptable to all soil types. They like well drained soil, but can tolerate moist soils and wet soils. They need good moisture to survive! They aren't a fan of drying out in the summer heat.

They are known for growing in average-moist soil--this is definitely an easy plant!

Since the Soulmate Swamp Milkweed loves moisture, water it regularly in the beginning! When you first plant it, this is the most crucial time to water consistently so it can establish in its new location.

After the first growing season, they just need deep, but not regular waterings. Water when it needs it!

Check if your perennial needs water by sticking your finger in the soil near the base. If it is dry, give it a good soak. If the soil is moist, leave it alone for a little bit.

They aren't in need of mulch unless planted in a very hot area. In those situations, they are a fan of gravel mulches, as they do best with these--but any mulch will help conserve moisture!

Naturalized plants like this aren't in need of a food source, so fertilizer isn't needed!

Prune your perennial in early spring if you deem necessary. You can cut off any damaged stems to ensure a gorgeous bloom in a few months!

This is, overall, a low maintenance plant! You'll love the life and color it brings to your yard with minimal effort!
