Hi, everybody-- just wondering...

I was at the garden center and saw their Milkweed 'Silky Red' planted in a display garden and each plant had about 5 stems. Mine (which I purchased at the same garden center some weeks ago) has only a single stem on each plant. Do you think they cut back their milkweed to get a fuller plant? Do you?

And 'ditto' for the Verbena Bonarienses. Their's was shortish (about 2 feet and bushier). Mine is 4 feet and thin.

Should I be topping these off, do you think?
