I saw this at a greenhouse the end of June, and the blooms were pretty well done. I am not familiar with the plant but hope to buy it next spring. Can you tell me anything about it?

I grew these from seed. I found cuttings to be slow and difficult. Could get one from seed almost as fast or even faster than it would root for me. It's an Asclepiad, so likes to grow in moderate moisture. Grows and blooms well here especially in spring and fall. During the hottest part of summer or if we are getting heavy rains it will slow down. If you are in a climate that can have wet seasons make sure to give it well draining soil. It goes dormant here in winter, but pops back up around mid April. I've had them get 4 ft. tall and about 2 -2 1/2 ft. wide. Here also shade during the hottest part of the day.
