Milkweed Plants


Anonymous added on December 23, 2017 | Answered

I have located milkweed in my area, southeast Id./northern Ut., that resemble antelope horn milkweeds, but have beautiful purple flowers and a darker green leave around them. They do not grow in swampy areas, but in dry sidehills or disturbed areas. Are they another variety of the antelope horn? I gathered a few seeds from the plants when the kids opened. Will they die if they are stored at room temperature, and do they need cold stratification.
