Bloodflower Milkweed

A herbaceous bush with full clusters of yellow and red star-shaped flowers. Grows 24-40″ tall. Attracts monarch butterflies and other beneficial insects. A perennial flower.

Milkweed is known to be slow to germinate. Stratifying the seeds helps. Sprinkle seeds onto a moist paper towel, fold the towel, insert it into a plastic bag, and place the bag in a refrigerator for 2-4 weeks. After that, sow seeds indoors in a warm and bright location. Plant seeds no more than 1/4" deep; they need light to germinate. Keep moist but do not overwater. Transplant outdoors when danger of frost is past.
