Hellebore Seeds, Ripe and Viable
First time collecting Hellebore seeds. Here in the first week of June, many hellebore seed pods are starting to split and drop seeds. At the same time, there are many others whose pods are still bright green, though big, juicy and swollen.
My question: The all-black seeds are certainly ripe according to all I've read. But -- are the half black ripe? You can see the two groups in the image attached.
Will they halvsies turn black in a few days just sitting out this way?
