For the past week or so I have noticed ants on my showy milkweed. The plants are 1 stem each and are about 2 feet tall. I was thinking of pinching them back to get them to send out more branches. Would this also take care of my ant problem? How far back to I prune? I know I've seen this info on these forums before, but after a quick search, I didn't find it.
same plant - new question. My swamp weed is already making seed pods. It's been warmer than normal so far this year. If I prune it back, will it bloom again? The pods are so pretty, but I really want more blooms. It's only the first week of summer.
