amsonia hubrectii seed

Does anyone know what the seed of amsonia hubrectii looks like? Are they little brown tube shaped objects (about 1/4 inch long) resembling cattails? I am not sure as the seed pod does not seem to go with flower shape. Thanks for the help

Yes, thats the seed, and you're right, it doesn't look like the pod you might expect from that flower type to me either.

They germinate pretty easily after a moist chill of 6 or more weeks. Druse suggests nicking then chilling, but I did not nick (not that it would hurt) and germination was fine, more seedlings than I needed.

thank you so much for the response...

I am planning on wintersowing it, so it should be happy. Thanks for the suggestion of nicking the seeds.
