The seeds can be stored like any other iris. I harvest the pods when they
begin to look dry and finish drying them inside in a shoebox.

They won't volunteer from seed here so I start them indoors in flats in
spring to plant out as soon as the heavy frosts are through.
I've had the best germination by soaking for a few days then chilling in
the frig for a month before bringing them into the sunroom to germinate.
