Question re clarkia seeds

Posted by danyoni z10Los Angeles (My Page) on

I've read that the clarkia seed pods should be left on the plant to turn dark brown in color. My plant got pulled up by my gardener by accident before the pods could dry out to that color. They are still green.

My question is -- if I leave the uprooted plant to dry out, will the seed pods still be usable?

Thank you!

It is hard to say for sure, but I would give it a try. Before you use the saved seed I would give them a viability test to prevent planting a lot of dead seed. Al
