I had two of my semp varieties flower this past summer and dabbed pollen with a paintbrush from one to another on many of the flowers. But I don't know what the seeds look like. Are they similar to the tall sedum seeds?

They are small/tiny round black seeds.



This was in the date base.

Thank you. Didn't think to look there. I was picking out what looked like that, but then there was also stuff that came out of the pods that looked like sedum seeds.

I run my seed and chaff through a wire mesh colander with my finders a few times over white paper. You don't have to get all the chaff out, just the bigger stuff.
