Organic. Started from seed.

Unfortunately this one took a three story fall, and then somebody stole it and never gave it back. Damn them.

Plant Bloodflower Asclepias curassavica 60


Care Instructions

Look to ensure a distance 1.95 feet (60.0 cm) between seeds when sowing - cover at a depth of at least 0.39 inches (1.0 cm) deep if you are going to sow this directly in the garden.

Bloodflower normally reaches to a mature height of 3.90 feet [imperial: 1.20 metres] so ensure you have enough space in your garden for this plant.

Remember to water moderately.

Your garden's USDA Hardiness Zone (6b) is not within the ideal known range for Bloodflower. The recommended range is between Zone 8 and 12. You may have to reassess this planting for suitability in your garden.

Bloodflower requires a soil ph of 6.1 - 7.5 meaning it does best in acidic to alkaline soil.

If you had a much trouble as I did getting these to survive from seed planting to blooming, I think you will agree that what happened to you is a hanging offense.
