Feeling better this year than I have in quite a few years has allowed me to really clean out the garden beds. And today I hit the jackpot! I found an Aristolochia tomentosa seedpod that had gone unnoticed before the leaves were shed. It's huge and is beginning to pop open. It was buried inside the plant so as to be totally hidden. I haven't counted the seeds yet.
This year has been a good seed-producing year. Maybe the stress of the hot, dry summer caused the plants to produce seeds in case they didn't make it. I had lots and lots of A clematitis seeds. I'd share these seeds, however, I've learned they are almost impossible to germinate. If you want to give them a try, let me know. I left most in the garden, but I can collect some to send. Be prepared to give the seeds two periods of stratification with a month of warmth in between.
Hope this finds all well and enjoying the season.
