Hi Bill,

Do you have any close-up photos?

not species but an escaped 28-chrom hybrid.


Usually self pollinates. Produces two seed capsules at the top of stalk. Often produces a bloom about six inches below the two at the top. Rarely produces seed on the lower third bloom. I have never successfully germinated seed. But then I only tried once by stomping them in wet ground in July I think. Stalks are about 30" tall here. Seed capsules behave as if they are designed to hold seed in a manner that cycles them through periods of wet/chilling to dry/warming several times until finally dropped to ground in late winter early spring.

Siberian seed germination techniques appreciated.
