Poke Milkweed grows best in indirect sun or partial shade, making it a superb plant for gardens with dappled sunlight. An important resource for Monarch butterflies, the bi-colored flowers also attract a variety of beneficial insects, including some varieties of moths. Tall, slender stalks reach heights of 5' and produce globe-shaped blooms that instead of standing upright, dangle elegantly off the stems. (Asclepias exaltata)

USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

  • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
  • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).

Plant Information

Perennial – blooms appear in the second season and will reappear for many years to come. 60" tall. Although Poke Milkweed is a long-lasting perennial, it does not spread as aggressively as other asclepias varieties. This makes it a smart option for smaller landscapes and more manicured gardens. Poke Milkweed is a habitat and food source for Monarch butterflies, moths, and other fascinating pollinators in your region. Like all milkweed grown from seed, this variety needs a cold period in order to germinate and is best planted in the fall or forced into cold stratification for spring seeding.
