It happens in a flash, but the memory of it last forever. It can not be borrowed or stolen, and it is of no earthly good until it is given away. So if in your hurry you meet someone who is too weary to smile, leave him one of yours, for no one needs a smile quite as much as he who has none to give...

Thanks Alana looks like that may be it.

I got some of those, too, Ronnie. Was thinking A. hubrichtii, but maybe the seeds of many Amsonia species look similar. (I've only grown A. hubrichtii.)

Amsonia tabernaemontana seeds look like that too. I don't know about species outside that and hubrichtii.

Hm. Added to wonder if the word tabernaemontana was somehow morphed into Centaurea montana?

That's good detective work Alana. The 'Amethyst in Snow' part remains a mystery. Smiling

I think somehow that plant (C. montana, Amethyst in Snow) was one of the species and cultivars that came up when someone was entering seeds in their trade list and they seized on the first thing that resembled the name they were trying to find...

Red bud seed pods look like that, also lupine.
