More Information

Description Whorled Milkweed (Asclepias verticillata) blooms in the summer with clusters of small white and green flowers. While these flowers aren't as flashy as other milkweeds, they certainly are just as effective for attracting pollinators! The flowers have a sweet fragrance and are filled with rich nectar. In the fall, flowers give way to smooth, narrow seed pods that open to release silky seeds. This native perennial is easy to grow, deer resistant, and drought-tolerant, making it an excellent choice for any gardener! Maintenance is a breeze, and it is generally disease-free. Milkweed is ideal for meadow gardens, native plantings, and wildlife sanctuaries. Plant it in a sunny spot to support your local pollinators! Details Botanical name: Asclepias verticillata
Common name: Whorled milkweed
Zone: 4 - 9
Sun exposure: Sun (> 6 hours sun)
Height x width: 30" X 24"
Flower color: White and light green
Foliage color: Green
Season of interest: Summer
Uses: Accent, Border, Cottage gardening, Erosion control or embankment, Ground cover, Massing, Naturalizing, Slopes, Specimen
How To Grow Soil: Easily grown in average, dry to medium, well-draining soils.
Light: Sun (> 6 hours sun)
Water: Dry to medium moisture
Spacing: 1-1.5 ft. apart
Fertilizing: It doesn't need consistent fertilizing. You can do a very light application the first summer after planting.

Propagation & pruning: Plants will self sow. Seeds can be gathered and started, though a started plant will take a few years to flower. Because of a very deep taproot, moving or dividing is not recommended. No pruning is needed.

Arrived in excellent condition

The plants were a nice dize and very healthy upon arrival. They are thriving despite the heat wave. I'll look forward to blooms next year.

Jury’s out

Wish I had gotten a more mature plant—one received was very small. I’ve now planted it out and hoping it will survive and grow.

Hello! Thank you for leaving us feedback. We do ship young plants with well established root systems. It's hard to say for certain why you aren't seeing growth, since so many factors - like weather, soil type, watering, and fertilizing all come into play. Perhaps you're familiar with the old saying about plants: first year sleep, second year creep, third year leap. This applies to plants in the garden center as well as plants you purchase online. They generally spend their first year growing roots in their new home, the second year they have more energy to put into growth, and the third year, they are growing and flowering vigorously. Happy Gardening!
