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.

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.
