I am a lifelong amateur botanist/horticulturist and am trying to find a source for wild flower seeds of the milkweed family (Asclepiadacea). Thanks.
There are a couple of approaches for finding seeds of milkweeds (Family Asclepiadaceae). Go to our Native Plant Database and select Asclepiadaceae (Milkweed Family) from the Family list. You can scroll through the 52 species that we have listed and look for those that have an entry under the Find Seed category.
