Re: peony seed?

Thanks Gene.  I managed to find 4 brown seeds from the tree peony and 6 blue
ones from P. obovata.  Might give it a try.  The one that is stumping me is
the Glaucidium.  They bloomed in spring before the peonies, but their pods
show no signs of maturing for collection.  They are plump and green still.
