Ok good to know thank you Vicky and Michele! Now I know not to save space for the seeds next year like I did this year... I might still try just to see, but at least my heart wont be broken when they dont germinate. Thanks again!

Hi Karlie - I have always read that regular hyacinth seeds that develop on the plant are sterile.  Hyacinth's are grown via bulbs.  You can grow purple hyacinth bean vine from seed though.

Lily of the valley is poisonous and makes a mat thru a garden that is crazy so I don't grow it. I've dug out plenty of it for others over the yrs. to keep it in check.

Grape hyacinths multiply like bunny rabbits, by seed and bulbs.

Comment by karlie zone 4b/5a on December 8, 2012 at 8:40pm

also, lilies... like lily of the valley. ours always gets seed bean pods and was just wondering if anyone has planted lily pods and were they viable and grew?

Comment by karlie zone 4b/5a on December 8, 2012 at 8:17pm

question... Does anyone grow hyacinths? I have the regular variety, and for some reason they had seed pods this past year? Waited until they dried (it was hard to wait though... It always is for seeds) and when I broke them open, there was tiny seed-like black round balls attached to tiny white-sac like balls inside.

I saved them and threw in the freezer. From what I can gather off the mighty internet, the seeds are not viable (regular breed hyacinths are sterile? but the grape variety and vining variety are viable) Anyone have experience with Hyacinth flower seed pods?
