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 for best germination rates. Start indoors. Your planting container should have holes in the bottom for excess water to drain. Sow the seeds just under the surface of a sterile seed-start mix, and water in. Leave them at room temperature (20-22 °C, 68-72 °F) for 4 weeks. If they have not germinated after 4 weeks then a cooling period is required. Cover them with plastic and place in a fridge for 4 weeks. Be sure they stay moist. After the cold-moist stratification period they are then brought back to a cool room (15C, 59F) for them to germinate. Germination can be 30-90 days after the warming period, though some will take longer.
