Saving Toad Lily (Tricyrtis) seed

northerner_on(Z5A ONCanada)October 26, 2011

I have spent the last hour scouring this site and the internet for instructions to collect these seed and there are several posts but none seem to have been completed with concrete information. I have a couple of clumps now in full bloom for more than a month. I have not dead headed and I can see no evidence of seed pods or heads or anything brown. Can anyone post pics. of what the seed pods look like and directions for collecting the seeds, or direct me to a source for this information? There is nothing on the seed site either. Thank you.

is a pic of Tricyrtis seed pods that are ripe and ready to harvest. -The seeds are easy to shake out of the seed pods once they start to split open.

Susan, thank you so much for this iformation and the pic. I was hoping to get a response earlier, before we had our first hard frost just last week. My plants were loaded with blooms this year, so I'll still have a look in case they're any still there. Strangely enough, I don't remember ever seeing anything like that, but they are at the back of our yard, under an apple tree and there isn't usually very much going on there in the fall when they bloom. I'll be sure to save the pic. for next year.
