Pearl milkweed vine seeds


More seeds from my pearl milkweed vines (Matelea reticulata)! I'm collecting them just in case anyone wants some. My three vines have been very productive this summer. It's the first time I've ever seen a pearl milkweed vine go to seed. Cool!

I loved finding this vine on my daughter's property in Dripping Springs. Wish I had a garden where it would grow. Thanks for sharing.

I transplanted all three of mine. :-)

I've decided native milkweed are my gardener's Great White Whale. I'd say sign me up for seeds but I'm not reading that these occur naturally in Travis County. Worse than that, I've already watched over the NON-germination of several varieties of native milkweed seeds so I don't dare risk yours. They are lovely and all should go to good homes!

Hi there. I am wondering if you still have pearl milkweed seeds?

Sheryl Smith-Rodgers said...

I will soon! They're busting out in blooms!

Unknown said...

I'm in San Marcos. Do you have any left?

Sheryl Smith-Rodgers said...

The seed pods haven't opened yet. So I'll have seeds soon.

Sheryl Smith-Rodgers said...

JT, I've got seeds now.

Great! How do I get in contact?

Oh, I have been reading about these and looking for seeds! Do you still have any you'd be willing to share with a novice gardener?

Sheryl Smith-Rodgers said...

Elizabeth, email me at sherylsr@ymail.com. I just ask for a self-addressed stamped envelope. If I don't have any right now, I WILL later this summer!

Hello Sheryl!~ I am so happy to find this page! I have been looking everywhere for Pearl Milkweed seeds 'Matelea reticulata'. I successfully grow Tweedia caerulea in pots and over-winter the plants in our cellar. I would dearly love to acquire some seeds for Pearl milkweed from you if you still have any available! Will be anxiously awaiting your response. I am on Facebook Victoria Hanlin (VicLee Gardens)...just a name we gave our Garden! Not a business! Thank you for any help you can give me! ~ Victoria Hanlin.

Just sent you a message, Victoria. :-)

Hi Sheryl, My husband and I saw this vine today for the first time during our hike at Landa Park in New Braunfels. We love it and would like to get some seeds if you have some available.
Thanks-Darcie
