MY W.S. Shrub (Chimonanthus Praecox) is, once again full of seed pods that need to be picked.
This will mean hundreds and hundreds of more seeds to add to the
hundreds I already have.

These seeds are large--like a plump Sunflower seed.
Will include germination instructions.
May take 5 or more years for it to reach blooming size.
Blooms in late winter on bare stems. Very fragrant!

There are plenty of pictures of this plant I have posted in PF

Please D-mail me if interested. Picture--shrub in full bloom last March.

I opened this Thread up again as I sure hope many more DG'er would want some of these.

Please D-mail me if you are interested...

Here is a 2gal. bucket-full of the seed pods just from this year.

I cut it back by a good third--as I do not wish to teeter on a folding ladder to
pick off the pods. Too old! Might lose my balance and fall.
SO! Out came the loppers...

I expect that next year there will be sparse bloom--but that's OK with me.
