Do clematis have seed pods? I have a blue clematis that has flowers that turn into fine green clusters after blooming. Today I looked at the plant and saw that at the end of each stem there was a heart shaped seed pod(?) When I pulled the cluster off the stems separated and they looked like little tadpoles. Is that what they could be? I decided to pot them up with 4-5 seed per pot.

Clematis flowers develop into seed heads that are grey fluffy balls. As you've discovered, you can extract the seeds from the seedheads and you can plant them. They take a few months to germinate but will eventually sprout and grow and you will be about to plant them in your garden when they are strong little seedlings. I wish you success with your seed starting project. Enjoy!
