color of hellebore seeds?
i have a pink hellebore that has large seedpods that are starting to split open, but the is no sign of the seeds turning brown at all-- they are white as snow with a speck of dark where they connect to the pod. they are very firm. all of the pics i have seen show the seeds to be darker. i am hesitant to harvest just yet, but i have read that fresh seeds, even immature seeds, germinate better than older seeds. is the pod splitting open enough of an indication that the seeds are mature enough to plant? or do the have to darken up first? thanks!
