Newbie with seed question

Okay, dumb question time :o) Which part of the salvia plant do the seeds come from? I see what "looks" like seeds on my spent flowers, but I'm a total novice, so I need to ask about absolutely everything. I have the Victoria blue (s. farinacea) variety. Thanks a million!

If you go to page 2 on this forum, the thread "Saving Seeds of the New World Sages" is explained by Richard. Hope this helped.

RE: Newbie with seed question

I haven't grown farinacea in years, but as I recall this salvia produced a lot of seed and seedlings came up everywhere in the spring. I wish I was looking at one now to be certain about the details, but check out the spent flowers that have turned brownish, there should be seed inside, although if it's like other salvia, the seed may quickly fall to the ground as the capsul dries.

RE: Newbie with seed question

Thanks! I was hoping those were seeds I was seeing on spent flowers. I'll plant the spent flowers and see if anything happens, if not, I'll look for seeds around the base like the other variety of salvia in the other thread :o)
