MJ,
Tuinkabouter has Iochroma australe on her list under the old name Acnistus australis.

Steph, the first seeds look like the Red Yucca (Hesperaloe parviflora) seeds that I've collected. Given your location, I'm sure these would be planted in many gardens.
I agree with everyone that the second is a Penstemon of some sort.

Oh, I made the mistake of cleaning some ornamental peppers with my bare hands once. They weren't too hot and didn't burn my hands or anything after washing. However, many hours later and many hand-washings later, I took my contact lenses out for the night and quickly discovered that there was still Capsaicin on my hands. Not fun! Crying

I brought some white flag iris a few years ago. I normally split the rhizomes as the stand increases, so I have never bothered to save any seeds. However, I decided to take a closer look at the dried flower heads today now that I am in the midst of seed trading addicts. Big Grin

Here is a photo of the plant, overview, and a closeup. Following is the seed that was in the pod. Some are lighter, some are darker. Can anyone tell me if they are viable? If they are, they are up for grabs and I will add them to my haves list. As an enticement, they make great cut flowers too.

My brother has been banned from processing hot peppers in the house... A few years ago the house became unlivable for a week after he dehydrated peppers and then turned them into powder in the kitchen in the blender.

Is anyone else's page out of wack? I'm having to scroll from side to side.
Soilsandup, I think you may want to move some of those pretty iris photos down to another line within that post to solve the problem.

The iris seeds look like they would be good to me. If I remember right, they have a shell around them that allows them to float. You can try peeling that shell off a couple to see if there is a seed inside.

Danita - that's odd. In my screen, the four images are in a single row and visible all at once. So, I assumed that it looks that way to everyone else. I normally post 3-4 photos in a row so that you don't have to scroll up and Down, but it defeats the whole purpose if you have to scroll side to side Hilarious!

In regards to the seed, I scraped the skin off, and there is a black solid what looks like a seed inside. The seeds are about 1/8-3/16 inch big. Hopefully someone can answer if they have had success growing flag irises from seed.

Yep.

If you could please edit your post Soilsandup. If there are more than two pix side by side it stretches the page very wide. Those of us with smaller screens can't see much more than half of any posts on this thread without scrolling back and forth.

My Nerine bowdenii is blooming right now, and some has started to form seed heads. I looked up some information on them, and it does say that it takes 3-4 years before the seedlings will bloom. If anyone has that kind of patience, I will save some seeds when they are ripe.

and they do make wonderful cut flowers too. In my zone, they start blooming from mid-September to the end of November,depending where they are placed in the garden. The lighter pink tends to bloom earlier than the darker pink.

Chelle and Danita - thread has been edited. Thanks for letting me know. The photos shows up as 1.5 inch by 1.5 inch on my computer screen, making it easy for 4 in a row. What size is it on your screens?
