I received a mix packet of lily seeds and there is a round hard seed.
Which lily gives round hard seeds? like a lupin or sweet pea seed?

Maybe it is a daylily seed (not true lily)?

Thanks for the quick reply.
That could be it---the packet is a mix so could be day lily.

Daylily seeds are usually black (in my experience)...

That would be my guess, too. Black in my experiences, also.
