Hello Yellow Asclepias Plant Care Instructions: Keep the plant well-watered for the first 3-4 weeks after transplanting. After that, only water if the plant starts looking droopy. Deadheading the first flush of flowers promotes additional blooms. If you don’t want the plant to self-seed, remove all flowers once they are finished blooming. Plants can be cut back to the ground once they drop their leaves. Spring is a good time to fertilize.

Great product

Very healthy looking plant came on time and already planted.

From Mary | August 28, 2023

Excellent Grower and Source for all plants

The plants arrived on time and in pristine condition. I followed the instructions and the plant is thriving. We shall see what it yields. As an aside, everything I have purchase from GrowJoy has grown as well as can be with the weather conditions. A great source for excellent plants.

Adorable tight growth milkweed

We ordered two of these and one arrived in poor condition with a broken stalk - it died shortly thereafter. So why 5 stars? It just happens sometimes in shipping and the other plant was just gorgeous. I don't think one shipping problem should spoil my review of this milkweed - can't wait for it to bloom and show me yellow flowers!

From Nora | July 09, 2023

Very happy!

This little plant arrived in good condition and appears to be healthy. It is growing like crazy!

So healthy, green and perfect. Was hesitant to plant so late in the season but Grow Joy plants are so healthy it really does not matter when you plant them, as long as you keep them watered. So love the Grow Joy plants.

From Robert | October 19, 2020


Just received my plant.Shipping was very fast and plant was well packed and arrived in excellent condition.This is the second year that i have bought from GrowJoy and could not be more satisfied.I usually don't send reviews,but this Company deserves it.

From anonymous | September 05, 2020


This plant arrived looking better than those I buy at our local nursery! The plant seemed like it had just been watered, and as I opened the box, there was a yellow bloom just smiling up at me! It has been in the ground for over a week in our hot West Texas sun and looks like it was made for this place!

From Cary | August 05, 2020

Hello Yellow

The 2 plants I received from Grow joy were arrived well packaged and moist in a box with no holes. They started off well in my Monarch garden but after 3wks one died and about 2wks after that the other one started growing horizontal along the top of the soil¬hing I did saved it. Will definitely try again next year. I also had bought from Grow Joy too 3 Orange tuberosa milkweed plants. They are growing beautifully and are about to bloom. I will continue to order from this company in the future!

From anonymous | August 16, 2019


This plant arrived robust and healthy. The soil was moist and the plant well rooted. Grow Joy always packages their plants very well to stand the trauma of shipping and always arrive ready to plant. Hrb

From Bobbie | August 14, 2019


I was surprised when I received your package. I forgot I had ordered the plants. I was also surprised at what good condition they came in. They were vibrant and healthy looking, as well as beautifully packaged. Thank you so much. They are planted in my flower bed and thriving. Karen

Hello Yellow

I received my order and have planted but no pics yet as they are babies. The order was impressive, packaged very meticulously, and moist still ….all intact. This is my company from now on not just because of the care but they also have plants for my climate I’m unable to get at nurseries here. Great job GrowJoy!

Excellent Hello Yellow Plant

This was my first purchase with GrowJoy and I am very happy with the plants I received. They were packaged so carefully the plants weren't stressed at all. They were a very good size for planting and they were in excellent health. I would order from GrowJoy again.
