Swamp Milkweed, perhaps more like MONSTERweed
Okay, it's my swamp milkweed's second full growing season and it is not impressing me. Could it be that last spring I gave it a bag of miracle potting soil when I dug out my clay soil? It's all tons of foliage growth and no blooms! It just grows into a monster shrub every year with ONE or two blooms. It takes up entirely too much space and I have never seen a monarch near it. I always cut it back by half once or twice a year to make sure it stays compact, remotely attractive & doesn't flop all over the place (because of the wind and sprinkler) What does everyone else think? It gets sun all day southern exposure and plenty of water. I want monarchs!!! But I am more pressed for garden space than butterflies these days- Thanks for any insight.
