It's called CATS CLAW VINE does anyone know what this is?? it's a somewhat flat looking seed in a brown clear looking seed casing, like when you hold it up to the light you can see the actual seed through the outter casing,(if that makes since) Any information would be a great help.
thanks for the help in advance

notmartha, thanks, for all the info. but 1 question, you said sow seeds 61-70 tempas soon as "ripe in spring" wonder what that means? do you think mine as ripe?? the seeds are brown in color and were passed along in a seed trade, so should I assume they are "ripe" enough to start?

Plant as soon as ripe means plant when they're fresh. If you got them in a trade, they'd almost certainly be ripe. If they're brown, they're almost certainly ripe. If they're dry, brown and being traded, I'd plant them now.
