I wonder if you can help me with two problems. First, I have trouble getting A.tuberosa to come up in my gardens or my prairie. When it does come up, it often does not make seeds.

Second, my sullivant's is yellow and sick looking. I have a fair amount of it, but this year's new plants are small,yellow or streaked with brown.

Need some prairie seeds? I have a quarter acre prairie full of various unusual prairie plants, and, will give free seeds if you contact me. To name a few... liatris, baptisia, grey head coneflower, purple coneflower, rattlesnake master, stiff goldenrod, and goldenrod spp, prairie dock, sneezeweed, etc...

Kit -- Milkweed is hard to pollinate, and often the flowers don't get pollinated. As for early yellowing in fall, I've noticed my sullivant's particularly enjoys dropping leaves first among my perennials.
