The Florida Milkweed Project intends to:
- Collect and distribute native ecotype seed for use by industry professionals and gardeners.
- Provide gardeners and industry professionals with information on seed collection, storage and propagation.
- Provide best practices information related to growing healthy, safe and sustainable crops of native milkweed in a production nursery environment.
- Educate gardeners and landscape professionals on the selection, use, cultivation and maintenance of native ecotype milkweed plants.
Florida Association of Native Nurseries is launching Phase 1 of the Florida Milkweed Project with funding support from the Florida Wildflower Foundation. We will be relying on advice and volunteers from our other state native plant partners, the Florida Native Plant Society (FNPS) and the Florida Wildflower Seed Co-op (WSPGA), as well as colleagues from the University of Florida (UF) and other qualified organizations which share our conservation ethic. Phase 1 will focus on the collection and distribution of native ecotype seed and related documentation, resulting in a draft Florida Milkweed Manual bringing together information on native milkweed habitats, flowering and fruiting times, seed collection and storage information, propagation and cultivation tip, etc.
