What flavors are you looking for? I have several.

Ju - the orange will not flower the first year from seed.

Neither will many of the other perennial varieties. I have some A. physocarpus and A. currasavica. Cold stratifying some A. incarnata, but not sure I have enough to share. Let me know.

AmandaEsq' I have (A tuberosa) and (A syricus) I don't know the name of Red Swamp Milkweed I didn't have many but sending the remainder to osborne311. The tuberosa I can send a few small plants of when it returns. For now,, just what is left of the seeds. Neither does the tall green(first year bloom)
The Honeyvine milkweed does though lol

I have Asclepias incarnata "Ice Ballet". Seed is several years old but still viable

Pix 1: seed is surface sown, 10 days to germination, I ended up with 38 seedlings that have been potted on, pix 3 just a few moments ago. these were started 12/29/12.

Osborne, I have FRESH milkweed (tropical-the red and yellow tall type) I just picked seed of yesterday. Only mail out typically once a year-all of my stuff to friends.
D-mail me with an addy for mailing 1st week of March, if interested. In 8B though, will need protection or harvest of seedpods for regrow. Monarchs do love it down here :)
