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.

Comment: 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.

Comment: 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!

Comment: 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!

Comment: 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
