The Plant store is now closed for orders.

  • I'm planning on one last round of sales toward the end of September of plants that I'll be potting up from a nursery bed I planted in the fall of 2022. I'll post the details and the time once I have the plants ready to go
  • Please see the Using the Plant Library  page  for some tips on how to make the most of the information here to select species for creating a healthy native plant community suited to the conditions of your site.

* Asclepias exaltata, Poke Milkweed

~Sold out for 2023~

Asclepias exaltata

Poke Milkweed

  • Average to moderately wet or moderately dry soils 
  • Partial to full shade
  • 4’ to 5’ tall, 2’ to 3’ wide
  • Mid Summer Blooms
  • Ontario Native, Thrives Forest and Open Woodland Ecosystems

Still new to my gardens, 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.
