  Pinellia tripartita seeds
From: Derek Powazek <fraying at gmail.com> on 2011.05.23 at 21:54:30(22081)
Hey y'all --

My Pinellia tripartita 'Green Dragon' has seeded. Anyone know how to
tell if the seeds are viable? They're green, not orange. Here are some
photos of the plant:


Anyone want some seeds? I know, the plant is invasive in warmer
climates, but it's pretty well behaved here in California.

All my Pinellia tripartita seeds were green and were all viable.

It sounds like they aren't fully ripe yet - but I would love some!

Thanks, Jude

Hi Derek,

If the fruit of P. tripartita is anything like its cousin, P. pedatisecta (a
real thug in my SE Wisconsin garden - must be like 150% germination rate!)
the berries never develop any color - just become a lighter shade of green.

I think I have ONE tripartita, but it has shown little if any inclination to
spread. I'd be glad to try some seed, tho. I'll send you me snail mail
address off list.
