Asclepias tuberosa is a milkweed species native to eastern North America. It is a perennial plant growing to 0.3–1 metre (10 in–3 ft 3 in) tall, with clustered orange or yellow flowers.  It is the most flamboyant of our milkweeds and is a joy to behold.  Our seed grown local varieties are a deeper orange than many.  Monarchs do love them, and will often nibble them down to their stems, but fear not, they will regrow.

They resent root disturbance, so plant them carefully!

Information

Prices listed are subject to change, based upon size change and availability.

We are a small local nursery with limited shipping capability. We will do our best to ship smaller material (usually 1 or 2 gallon), although we can sometimes ship larger plants with the pots removed.

We have some species that are not listed, as we have too few of them to make a full listing plausible. You can always inquire.

We will consider contract growing an order with appropriate advance notice and availability of seed, cuttings or lining out stock.
