Milkweed plants

I'm hoping I didn't wait too long to plant my plants. I have one that is kind of sad looking, but I planted all three yesterday. We had a little rain overnight and today, so I hope they will be happy. Now I know what milkweed plants really look like!

Nothing

No growth at all. So disappointed. I think I can say I have never been so disappointed in any gardening company. And these were not cheap!

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience! The establishment period for native perennial plants can take a bit of time and during this phase while the plants are focused on root growth, there may be minimal visible growth. If you have any questions or concerns about your plants, please don't hesitate to reach out to our customer care team at orders@gardenforwildlife.com.
