~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.

The Online Plant Nursery will re-open for orders on Tuesday, May 17th

Pickups will begin the following week.

I will be offering plug sized plants for $1.25 each or 5 for $5. 

I'm in the process of adding species that I expect to offer this spring to the listings since they are starting to germinate and I'm starting to get an idea of which will be available in abundant quantities.

Since the list is much longer this year I've added several categories to help narrow down your options based on a variety of criteria.

For those who have already adopted seedlings, planting instructions can be found here.
