Sandhill Milkweed can be found in the Northern two thirds of Florida where there is well drained sand and full sun. This milkweed can be used as groundcover with stems about two feet long. This plant is also known as "Purple milkweed" because of its purple flower that bloom every spring and summer. Sandhill milkweed will die back in late fall and re-emerge in early spring. This species should not be put in small areas or pots as they will overwhelm them. This plant does best in moist to dry, well-drained sandy soil.
