The Q&A Archives: Need Plant Identification

Question: I purchased Asclepias Cinderella and have a nice batch of seedlings. Pkg. does not mention botanical name and Asclepias vary greatly in cultural requirements. Which type of Asclepias is Cinderella?

Answer: Your plant is Asclepias incarnata 'Cinderella', also known as Swamp Milkweed. It's a stout-stemmed plant that grows best in wet areas, but will adapt to soils given reasonable moisture during the growing season. Provide full sunshine and water regularly and your Asclepias should thrive.
