Burning Bush Seeds

mary_maxOctober 17, 2006

I am seeing some little red seeds or fruit or whatever now that the leaves are almost gone. Are these the seeds and if so what next. Do I pick them, let them drop, and when do I sow them. What about winter sowing them and if so is now the time?? As always,Thanks

Burning bush seeds a found in the red fleshy aril that are with in the fruit. Clean the seed and give them 1-3 mo cold startification. Seeds may be planted directly ourdoors in fall, sown into pots and kept outside for germination or brought inside once the chilling requirements have been met.

Let me explain what I did. I picked the red fruit. I opened it and there was another redish orange covering which I then opened and found one clear ivory looking seed. Is this right? Thanks so much.

Do I take the seed out of the red fleshy aril that is with in the fruit BEFORE sowing or sow it with the fleshy aril?

It's usually best to clean any seeds well of any pulp or fleshy bits from the fruit - they may contain germination inhibitors.
i.e. - The Clothiers site recommends scrubbing euonymus seed 3 x per day for seven days before sowing

In many areas it is requested that burning bushes and seeds not be planted as the birds are known to distribute the seeds so completely, the bb's that result outnumber the indigenous plants and crowd them out. You may want to check your area.

It's on the 'Invasive Plant List' don't plant it.

Find something else that turnings red in the fall.

Sow the seeds about 1/4" deep and chill for 3 months. Whether you chill indoors or out you can bring the seeds to normal growning tmeps after the three months is up.

Hi Mary, I found seeds on mine and they were germinating right on the plant. I did some research and found this....Propagation

Seed - best sown as soon as it is ripe in a cold frame. Stored seed requires 8 - 12 weeks warm followed by 8 - 16 weeks cold stratification and can then be sown in a cold frame[78, 98]. When they are large enough to handle, prick the seedlings out into individual pots and grow them on in the greenhouse for at least their first winter. Plant them out into their permanent positions in late spring or early summer, after the last expected frosts. Cuttings of half-ripe wood, 5 - 8cm long taken at a node or with a heel, July/August in a frame. Very easy[200].

heres a link where the article was posted.....http://www.pfaf.org/database/plants.php?Euonymus+alatus+apterus

hope that helps.

YES - pink_petunia is right. What I did was planted the seeds 1/16" in peat moss in a milk jug that I cut in half, indoors in November. I misted the top of the peat each day. In February, I taped the top of the milk jug onto the bottom and placed it outside. Once the weather got a little warmer, I could see the seedlings.
