Lillypod seeds,

Posted by DebraQ z7ny (My Page) on

On my Stella D'Oro lilly, the pods had small black shiny seeds. But my Stargazer Lilly, when their pods turned brown and opened , it only looked like brown pieces of paper.
Of course I saved both, but are they viable?
I am addicted to collecting seeds, but don't always know if what I am collecting are truly seeds.Is there a good book available to help me identify seeds?
Sometimes the seeds are so obvious, but othertimes I can't locate them on the plants.
All advice and help will be greatly appreciated.
Am still kinda new to this site, so thanks in advance.

RE: Lillypod seeds,

What you describe in this thread are the seeds. Do a search for each of the plant names and click on images - I just found pictures of seeds for the stargazer.

RE: Lillypod seeds,

Thank you so much.You have now added to my addiction and no plant will be safe from me on Long Island!lol :)

RE: Lillypod seeds,

I've had SUPER SUCCESS with Stella d'oro lily seeds...they don't always hold true to the original plant, though. Not that it bothers me, I'd drive a structured gardener crazy with my haphazard planting! : ) Good luck,
