Hoping for flowers next year

5 out of 5 stars Jul 20, 2020
These germinated pretty well. Unfortunately, I tried starting them inside and transplanting even though I have read repeatedly that it's not advised. With reason, they were not happy and many died. Some have recovered and look promising. I'm hoping they'll survive and bloom next year. This variety looks so beautiful.

Wonderful Germination!

I placed about 10 seeds on some seed starting soil which was on a wet paper towel and placed that inside a closed ziplock bag. Then placed that on a heat mat. Took about 5 days to have 6 germinate, faster than my other milkweed seed. Not sure how well they will do once I place them Into pots, but germination was great.
