I am looking for seeds/plants of Asclepias purpurascens (purple milkweed) from a lower Ohio Valley origin. Prefer seeds but will hedge with a few plants. Anyone know of a source?

Same for me. I guess that's why seeds are so hard to find Sighing!

I lost my plants a couple years ago. When I saw seeds at Prairie Moon, I jumped on them. They arrived a couple days ago, but I see Prairie Moon is already sold out Sad The company has an option where you can request to be notified when the seeds are back in stock, though Smiling

Prairie Moon still has seeds. You might have to call them to see where they come from.

Human beings, who are almost unique in having the ability to learn from the experience of others, are also remarkable for their apparent disinclination to do so.

I have Asclepias incarnata Rose Milkweed which never set seed yet and I find hard to keep thru the winter. Tons of Asclepias tuberosa both yellow and orange. Never saw purpurascens. Had to look it up. Sounds like I would have trouble with it in zone 6 Pittsburgh area? I think I would like to try it. Thanks for bring it up.
