: Can you winter an Asclepias Silky Red (perennial)?. It is currently in the ground. The tag that came with the plant said to treat it as an annual, which i don't want to beleive. I live in NH and our winters can get pretty cold.
: Thanks for your help,
There are some milkweed that grow only in the warmer zones. I would suggest you let it go to seed, collect them and replant them in the spring. I have great luck with milkweed seed germination.
