Hi Sherry,

I did sow some pink asclepias this year and would love to try your Silky Gold. Would you like me to Tree Mail you my address if you still have some left?

Thanks

I'll be home tomorrow, so I'll do it then. Don't have much time on the computer while I'm baby sitting for my daughter's infant and 5 year old while she travels for work. Her husband works long hours so they need me too.

wcgypsy -
I know I'm late to the game, but do you have any seeds left?
Even if you don't, I'm glad to see that you are using the name Asclepias curassavica 'Silky Gold'.
I did a search here on ATP and it resulted in Butterfly Weed (Asclepias curassavica 'Silky Gold'). I thought, nyuha. Butterfly Weed is A. Tuberosa. I was looking to post a picture of my A. Curassavica 'Silky Gold' covered with aphids. (It was fun when I took the hose and blew those little boogers away.)
Now I don't know what to do. Maybe just keep my mouth shut and not post the picture. I'm new at this so I don't really know what I'm doing anyway.

Have you heard this trick? Allegedly you can put the seed pods in a paper bag with a small hole cut in the bottom. Shake it up and the seeds will come out with only a little fluff. Haven't tried it myself. Made a mess instead. I've also heard that goldfinches like to use the fluff for their nests. Just throwing out a few little tidbits in case you hadn't heard them.

Grins! tx-flower-child

Oh wow...that must have been a 'long ago' post....LOL..no, I don't have any seeds of that particular asclepias now. I did grow that in SoCal, but am in far Northwestern California now (for the last 2 1/2 years) and am not growing it. This year I've sown seeds of asclepias purpurescens, speciosa and fascicularis and am getting stands of that going.

Just ask for it on the trading forum, I'm almost sure there is someone who has it and would like to share....

Yeah, it gets aphids...but I was not growing it for looks.....and when you plant asclepias, plant as much as you can because it's upsetting to get Monarch cats and not have enough food for them. I was cutting and taking stems to a friend who was afraid her Monarch babies would starve....LOL...
I could be wrong...

Oh, that was old. 2012. Oops. But at least I feel better knowing that you use the same nomenclature for the danged 'Silky Gold'.
