Can I expect seeds from this A. gamosepala?

I love this plant. But would like to increase my current population so I can plant all over the yard and give to my neighbors. I did nothing to the flowers but I think these are the "berries"? Any thoughts/tips?

If some or all of those reddish ovaries start to swell up and turn green, then shiny purple-black, that will mean there are seeds inside. No sign of that yet.

Really? Ok see well first they turned green (from original pink color) and then they turned to this darker pink. That seems different from what you described? Thanks!!

Hi localoca,

A picture's worth a thousand words. This pic shows what Lisa described. These are common every day gamosepalas.

All the best Nev.
