How to Plant and Care for Showy Milkweed:

  1. Planting: Sow seeds directly in the garden after the last frost or start them indoors 4-6 weeks before transplanting. Press seeds lightly into the soil, covering them with 1/4 inch of soil. Space seeds or seedlings 18-24 inches apart.

  2. Germination: Depending on temperature and moisture conditions, showy milkweed seeds can take 7-30 days to germinate. Maintain consistent moisture and be patient, as germination times can vary.

  3. Growing: Showy Milkweed plants prefer full sun but can tolerate partial shade. They are drought-tolerant once established but will benefit from occasional watering during prolonged dry periods.

  4. Maintenance: Showy Milkweed is a low-maintenance plant requiring minimal care. Prune spent flowers to encourage further blooming and maintain a neat appearance. Keep an eye out for aphids, which may occasionally infest the plants.

  5. Harvesting Seeds: Allow seed pods to mature and dry on the plant. Collect the pods when they begin to split open and store the seeds in a cool, dry place for future planting.
