Does anyone know what firespike seeds look like? Does anyone have a picture of the seeds?
You might find some info on the seeds here: http://www.google.com/search?q=firespike&sourceid=mozilla-search&start=0&start=0
I could never find a good picture of what the seeds look like, although I found a couple of references made about seeds. I gave up. Hopefully, it will come back in the spring and I will look again.
My firespike always comes back, if yours doesn't, I have plenty to share.
I can't believe I've found the name for my favorite fall blooming plant! I grow it in the shade and it blooms for well over 6 weeks and only stops when a hard frost kills it. I love this plant, and never knew its name. Everyone said it looks too tropical to grow here (Atlanta), but I've had mine for 4 years now and last January it got down to 8 degrees. Unfortunately, I've never noticed seeds of any kind. :-(
It should come back. I did not see any obvious seeds either. Hopefully, I will see it again in the spring.
I rooted a few this summer with Root-tone in damp sand. They rooted very fast.
i would like to have some seeds if you have any to trade or sase? plmk
Moretz, I never did find those seeds! The plant has died down for the winter, but will return in the spring. Remind me, and I will root you some.
I was told (I haven't tried it) that once the flower stalk is brown and dry you shake it into a bag to collect seed. The same as porterweed. Never have gotten seed from them either...
Id be interested on buying seeds of the firespike!
