Whorled milkweed starter plant (Asclepias verticillata) (dormant)

$7.00

Whorled milkweed starter plant (Asclepias verticillata). Shorter milkweed will narrow needle like foliage. White flowers in midsummer. As other milkweeds, it’s the host for monarch butterflies. Many native milkweeds are slow growing from seed, but I find this one to be a bit easier and faster growing and usually produces flowers by it’s second year.

These have gone dormant for the year, but still have excellent root growth and can be planted anytime the ground isn’t frozen. Just treat as is though it were still growing and water through any prolonged dry spells. If ordered in the fall they may still have some foliage or yellowing foliage but in late fall or winter will just be old stems. Planting dormant plants is a great way to get plants established for next season!

All of our plants are grown in biodegradable fabric pots. The containers are around 4″x4 1/2″ May be planted in the pot or removed. If kept on, I suggest ripping the sides of the pot for easier root penetration.
