Flowering Months
Feed and water regularly throughout the growing season until milkweed plants are fully established. Once established they require little maintenance. Deadhead the first flush of blooms when they fade to promote a second flush of Asclepias flowers. Leave the faded flower heads of any subsequent blooms intact at the end of summer to enjoy an attractive autumn seed head display. When the first frosts blacken the stems, cut them down to ground level. Lift and divide overcrowded clumps of Asclepias in spring.
Grow Asclepias plants in sunny borders in fertile, well drained soil. Once established common milkweed is reasonably drought tolerant and will survive dry conditions well. Caution: Contact with the milky sap may irritate skin.
