Description

Asclepias exaltata (poke milkweed or tall milkweed) is native to eastern North America. It blooms from late spring to early summer. Seeds are rare and hard to find.

Poke milkweed is found in moist woodland habitats. It grows in moist soil and sunny or partly d places. It grows from 0.6 to 1.5 meters (2.0 to 4.9 ft) tall.

Type: Hardy perennial

Height: 0.6 to 1.5 meters (2.0 to 4.9 ft), though usually near 5 feet

Location: Sun, part sun or part

Hardiness zones: 4-7

Seeds per pack: 5

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

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.
