Conocarpus. I've found a picture of the seeds online, but nothing in any of my propagation books on germination other than statements similar to - " producing large number of small seeds with low germination and survival rate. " This one sounds much easier from cuttings than sowing...but of course you have nothing to lose by trying :)

Here is a link that might be useful: pods (really drupes) and individual seeds
