Legal to plant natives?
I ran into this document on Purple Milkweed (Asclepias purpurascens) in Massachusetts--
Since it's endangered in the state it says "All listed species are protected from killing, collecting, possessing, or sale and from activities that would destroy habitat and thus directly or indirectly cause mortality or disrupt critical behaviors."
I don't get how to interpret that. Would it be illegal to buy a $2 packet of seed and plant some on my property because it's illegal to "possess"? Or would that only apply to wild-collected plants?
