 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 verticillata

Asclepias verticillata

Whorled Milkweed

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

The shortest of the Milkweed species that I’m offering this year, these mature to roughly 2’ in height. Like Common Milkweed, they are rhizomatous and will spread over time, rather than forming a dense clump.

While their foliage is quite distinct from many other Milkweeds, looking more like Liatris than Asclepias, it is still palatable to Monarch butterfly caterpillars

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