Nothing is happening in my jug yet, but neither is my buddleia. I'm hoping they just take longer.

Pony, where did you get your seed? I got a couple divisions of F. rubra in a swap years ago, and it is a huge patch now. These spread quite vigorously! They're duking it out with the Monarda didyma and 'Raspberry Wine' - all of which are going to swallow the Hummingbird garden if they aren't culled back.

I've never even looked for the seed on these. What do they look like?

I purchased them from Georgia vines. They are really thin seeds about a quarter inch long. They looked like the Buddleia seeds if you have ever seen those. BTW, those have not sprouted yet either.

I have Filipendula vulgaris sprouting for me and Buddleia seeds as well. Both are from a trade.

Moonwolf, how long have they been sprouting? Maybe mine are just behind?
