|Milkweed Asclepias syriaca. Year#3. 5.24.17|
Last fall, I dug up two of the milkweed plants, and transplanted them to a front yard flower bed. They do not appear to have survived. I read they are difficult to transplant, interesting for such a sturdy-looking plant.
These plants seem to be the last to start growing. They must need a lot of warmth to break dormancy. Almost everything else has leafed out, before the milkweeds showed any sign of life. I thought they were dead. The same thing happened last year. Then I was walking around, and saw they fooled me once again.
