I doubt it. And if I do they'd be a year or two old. I assume my plants will produce seeds, though I don't know if they'd be true to the parent plant. Would you like me to try for fresh seeds?

gardengus said:Reading about Chelle's pots make me wonder if that would work for the lupines.
I use to grow huge beautiful lupines in Michigan ,but have had no luck here , tried just about every thing,
I am going to try pots and see Shrug! can't hurt.Thumb of 2012-06-02/gardengus/820a83


Give it a shot, Cinda.

My mom has had a lupine in a pot (set partway into the soil) in nearly full shade for years. It blooms every year without fail, and nobody ever does a thing for it. Blinking Go figure.


They don't get as big as the ones in your picture, though...those are stunning!

Thank you, Allison.

Cinda, I'll do my best to get you some seeds. At least one flowering stem should be mature now. I'll get that one today, let you know when I get enough collected. They wintersow very well. Thumbs up

Cinda, I don't think all heuchera produce seeds. I only have this one (Ruby Bells) and Georgia Peach, so what do I know? But I've had the Georgia peach for a few years and it definitely doesn't produce seeds.

2 years ago I saved seeds from my heuchera. It was just an experiment to see if they would grow from the hybrid plants. What I did was put small organza bags on the bloom, then waited until they looked dry. The seeds are very tiny. Its hard to get all the chaff out but after 2 colanders and window screen I thought good enough. This was around Aug. Then planted them in seed starting mix in the green house about October. I just sprinkled it over the starter mix and then picked the plants out later. Boy did I get plants!

I will take a picture tomorrow. Sadly I did not keep track of what plant's seeds were where. I just mixed them all together. They are mostly red/burgundy foliage but there are some green and peach. I have given them to people in my garden club, DG people that live near me and friends and I still have a ton.

I took a closer look at what might be called flowers on some dark leaved ones and now know why I have never gotten seeds .
I normally just cut the stalks off... Glare the flower stalk just detracts from the prettier leaves.

Some are sterile, and form no pods or seeds. The inflorescences just disappear from the stem. That's what happens with Georgia Peach. Those are propagated by dividions.

But on those that set seed, the pods are obvious. Seeds are dust-like.

Some of my first ever, seed-started frilly pansies. Hurray! These were much easier to germinate and grow than I expected them to be. Thumbs up

Before it bloomed my fellas asked me why I had a dandelion in a pot... Hilarious! ...its leaves are unremarkable, to put it nicely,



but all aspects of it from there on up are great. Big Grin
