Asclepias incarnata (Swamp Milkweed) is a wildflower with very beautiful clusters of pink flowers in summer and is a favorite larval food for Monarch butterflies.
Asclepias (Milkweed) are sun loving plants that are essential perennials for monarch butterflies providing food for caterpillars and nectar for adult butterflies. They bloom from mid-summer into early fall and, with their milky sap, are resistant to rabbits and deer.
Asclepias can be divided into two groups for plant care; Asclepias tuberosa with orange (sometimes yellow) flowers and all the other species with pink (sometimes white) flowers.
Preferred growing conditions:
Oftentimes, Milkweeds won't grow much their first season in the ground, so be patient. They are establishing their root system and crown. By the second growing season, the plants will begin to get bigger and look more robust. Asclepias species are an odd bunch and don't behave like many other more familiar perennials. So be patient and accept their quirky nature.

Comments about High Country Gardens Asclepias incarnata Seeds:
Did the cold stratification as described. Now they are in peat pots in the sun covered with plastic - trying to get a spout. Nothing yet after a week. Any other ideas to get them growing?

Wish They Germinated and Grew more Easily
from Sheridan, WY
I just can't get these guys started but I'll keep trying. Eventually I'll find the perfect way to get more of them to germinate and survive transplanting in the flower bed.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.
