Mexican Heather

Orland Park, IL(Zone 5b)

I have several Mexican heather plants and I would like to save some seeds. What do the seeds look like and how can I harvest them? thanks

You will find a tiny swelling at the base of the spent flower. Pollinated flowers will form seeds in this swelling. After the flower dies and the swelling starts browning, you can snip off the tiny seed pod (swelling)....the seeds are tiny like small flecks of pepper.
