plantsofheaven(PA/18088)April 13, 2006

I have 6 primrose that I crossed with each other but where are the seeds. I pick the dead heads off but I can not find the seeds. Please help! They are the primroses usually found at grocery stores this time of year. Not sure of scientific name. If you want a picture because you do not know the kind I am talking about let me know. Also would appreciate the scientific name if you know.

Hi Mike,
Primrose flowers are different between plants. In the center of the flower they are like innie or outie belly buttons, lol, that is the best I know for a description. It is a very tiny difference. So you need to make sure you are using two plants with the different centers to get seeds.
I'm not sure what you mean by picking the dead heads off. I would just let the flower be until the seeds are ripe.
The link below has what the unripe seed pod looks like. Also on the site on another page is what the ripe pod and seeds look like.

Here is a link that might be useful: Unripe seeds pods
