Q.Transplanting Milkweed

Zone Redwood City, California | Beverly Morgan added on October 8, 2022 | Answered

I planted milkweed seeds in a pot, and would like to replant them in the ground so they will get more water and spread and grow (come on, monarchs!). Is milkweed a perennial or an annual? What should I do to insure it is happy in it’s new location (close to where it’s been so far). Thanks!

This simple perennial will grow without help. You can, carefully, transplant into the area of choice any time that the weather is mild. It helps to do so after a rain.
