milkweed management in Florida
I'm a 'snowbird' and we have arrived at our winter home in Florida. I have milkweed growing, Asclepias curassavica 'Silky Gold' and the regular orange A. curassavica. The caterpillars have enjoyed the plants, they're still munching, and I have two cocoons on the outside of my window frame.
My question is about plant management. Should I cut back the milkweed stalks that have no leaves? Or will they re-leaf? I don't have any seeds forming but I have a few leftovers from my last year's PA garden that I plan to start so there are more leaves for them next season.
Thanks for suggestions.
