I had been looking for some Asclepias amplexicaulis (Sand Milkweed or Clasping Milkweed) seeds but every place that carried them were out of stock. They are quite hard to come by & only a few places actually sell the seed. Prairie Moon Nursery had the option for me to request notification when they became available again so I signed up. I got a notice they are in so I ordered 4 packages. Alas, I got them today & they only sent 1 package saying they have such limited quantities that they are restricting orders to 1 pkg. each. So if any of you out there want to get some of this seed you better jump on it now before they are all gone again.

And here it is in our database

Does anyone know where to get some asclepias amplexicalis seeds now? Prairie moon does not sell them anymore. Please let me know if anyone has any. Blinking

The aboriginal people of the world and many other cultures share a common respect for nature and the universe, and all of the life that it holds. We should learn from them!
