I will be getting some Redring Milkweed (Asclepias variegata)
seed from the swap. Iowa is outside of its native range, but I thought to try it anyway. Maybe I can share seed at a later time.
Could this possibly be grown in a container? I think this would be the easiest way for me to baby the plants. The height and spread are not very much, but does it have a deep root? Reading about soil requirements, it needs well drained soil... is standard potting soil considered "well-draining"?
If you do not think this can grown in a container, I think I can squeeze them in somewhere close to the house. I believe that is actually my best soil. Getting out away from it, there is a lot of clay.
Thank you for any advice.
