 The Plant Store

The plant store is now closed for the season.
I'll be winter sowing through the fall and early winter and potting up seedlings again come spring for the 2023 sale.

Asclepias exaltata

Asclepias exaltata

Poke Milkweed

New to me this year, grown from seeds sourced from Prairie Moon Nursery.

A woodland species, this Milkweed thrives in dappled shade and rich soil.

When happy, they can grow to 5’ in height. Prairie Moon’s description of this species warns that they can be difficult to keep happy after transplant, so please be sure that you have an appropriate location for them and to handle the seedlings with care.

Please check out the Prairie Moon listing at the link above for more details.
