Description

Asclepias viridiflora, the 'short' green milkweed, is known from much of the eastern and central United States from Connecticut to Georgia to Arizona to Montana, as well as southern Canada.

Asclepias viridiflora is an erect to ascending herb up to 50 cm tall, with distinctive greenish-white flowers. The pods lack the warts and tubercules common on other species of Asclepias.

The seeds of Asclepias viridiflora are rare to find, and are very limited.

As these plants are not as tall as many other milkweed, they can easily be blended into urban landscapes. We also offer many other types of Milkweed! View all seeds and combine shipping.

Type: Perennial

Hardiness zones: 3-9

Height: 50cm, 20"

Location: Sun or part shade

Note: Ornamental use only. These seeds and/or plants are poisonous.

Seeds per pack: 5

Germination: Start these seeds right away to preserve viability, no matter the time of year. Sow the seeds just under the surface of a sterile seed-start mix, and water in. Then cover them with plastic and place in a fridge for 5-6 weeks. Be sure they stay moist. After the cold stratification period they are then brought back to room temperature for them to germinate. Germination is generally within 60 days after the warming period, though they could take a few months. If possible, the best location for sowing in March, April and May, is in cold frame or a cold greenhouse where they will receive the cold period and fluctuating temperatures naturally.
