So normally I pluck all of the seed pods, but this year, I saved a couple. One was a huge seed pod on my El Desperado that crossed with a mystery daylily.
Over the weekend, it cracked open. Unfortunately, I had 3 rather long 14 hour days at work and never got home till way after dark to go look.
Fortunately, there were still seeds in two of the sections, yielding 12 nice sized seeds!
My 14 year old daughter and I are going to save them and plant them and see what we get. It will be a fun experiment.

|Congrats!!!! It will be fun! I have my first sprouted seed (I made a cross on purpose and the seed pod carried just one seed...), I hope it will turn into a nice DL!|

|Congrats! Keep in mind that each seed will produce a unique one-of-a-kind plant. Some of the blooms may look similar and some may look totally different. It will be fun to see what blooms you get from any seedlings that germinate and grow! Good luck!|
