Need Help with Cobaea (cup 'n' saucer vine)

Robin282(z7 SE MA Coast)November 1, 2005


I grew Cobaea this year. It seems to be a late bloomer. I am looking to collect seeds, but I am wondering what part of the flower will become the seeds. I know what the seeds will look like because I started these from seed; however, it seems it will not be the central "fruit" that turns into the seeds. Maybe it will be the part behind the cup blossom that is left after the flower cup falls out.

Can anyone enlighten me?

Are there any other varieties of this except the purple?

Yes, the seed is behind the cup, and they really are late bloomers. They also come in white.
