Gemma, the plants you have will be just great. Milkweed will grow just about anywhere as it is considered a nuisance weed, spreads like crazy. I have not had good luck getting swamp milkweed to come back and the white and yellow varieties are considered annuals here. Misplaced my tropical seed so none of that this year. The butterfly weed comes back every year as well as producing tons of seed pods. regular milkweed does not have a long bloom time unlike the other varieties.@mrsclem I was inspired by your butterfly garden, you are doing a very good job!
My plan is to eventually fill the new court with a bunch of plants for hummers and butterfly, but this year I guess I have to be happy with the plants I already have (butterfly bush, Columbine, phlox, Lilies, bleeding heart, zinnias,, etc .....
I love the red and yellow Columbine, I've never seen it on sale before. I have 2, a white and red (not that kind of red), and a purple one,
I'm trying to learn more about milkweed to see if it could work in my garden , are there many varieties or just different colors? Does it bloom for long? is Milkweed the same as butterfly weed?
