This milkweed species is very slow to emerge from dormancy in the Spring. I tried not to disturb them, and weeds more or less took over that spot. I gave up on them, thinking they died. This week I cleaned up the area, and noted new growth for both plants. That's nice, since I did want them to grow there. They are behind the others in size, and a bit scrawny due to weed competition, but now I think they will establish and mature nicely in their new home.
