Milkweed did not grow!

I got the 6-plant selection which included two milkweed plants. The Asters bloomed and coreopsis is huge and thriving but the milkweed did not really grow at all, I’m so disappointed, of course. They looked wimpy from the beginning and now are pretty much all brown. ???? I went to a lot of effort to assure the perfect environment, even placing them on my deck in very large planter along with the asters. Any ideas?

5 out of 6

One of the plants was dead on arrival. The others were healthy. I’ve planted them per instructions and they seem to be thriving. Hoping for lots of butterflies in 2023.

Can't wait for spring!

Plants arrived well-packaged and very healthy. We planted in midOctober and after about 10 days, they look like they are taking to their new habitat. We'll be excited to see how they manage over winter and grow in the spring and summer.
