Do you recognize these seeds/pods?

w1ldflower(5)November 24, 2012

Hi all! I tried posting in the Name that Plant forum and thought I'd give this one a try. I have seeds from two unidentified plants which are hardy at least to zone 5. I'm including pics of the dried seed pods and seeds and hoping someone may be familiar with them.

The first has rounded seed pods with openings at the top. They are between 1/8 and 1/4 inch in diameter.

Second plant has elongated pods which are 1/8 inch wide and between 1/4 and 3/8 inches in length. Pods are ribbed and have four internal chambers which contain tightly packed tan-colored cylindrical seeds (packed together inside they stack snugly to form a perfect bean shape)in columns.

The second one looks like Dutch iris.

Dutch Iris is a monocot. So the leaves don't fit.

If you're still trying to figure out what those seeds pods are from, try contacting the nearest university extension office or Master Gardener organization. Your local library might be able to give you the web address of phone number. They usually offer free plant identification services. There are always Master Gardeners at my town's summer Farmers' Market and I've taken pictures to them to help identify plants in my yard. Good luck!

That foliage looks like it's from a peony tree. I have two different peony trees it looks alot like their foliage. Here's a link that just might help.

The seed pods for no.2 are not tree peony pods.

They look like Scrophularia marilandica and Oenothera biennis to me.
