Hey Sandi-

I'm no expert, but I'm pretty sure that is a form of a seed. I think your supposed to let it dry out and then if you plant it another will grow. Maybe you have to plant it fresh... I'm not really sure about that part.

Your flowers are beautiful though... it's worth laboring for :D

xoxo,
Jenna Lou

I believe Jenna's right! Don't whack it open! Eeeekkkk! Let it be!!! :)) Love your daisies! Gorgeous!!!

Leah

Yeah, it's a seed pod...maybe from an Iris? Oh and I love your daisy's! They're one of my faves!

Yep it is the seed pod. All flowers form seeds where the flower once was. Since iris multiply from the tuber they are usually not started from seed. You probably haven't seen the seed pod before because usually after an iris blooms (and all spring bulbs too like tulip, daffodil) the flower stalk and leaves of the plant are cut back.

By the way, I'm a new visitor to your blog lately. How exciting that you are designing your own fabric line. With FreeSpirit? I'll be back often following your journey.

It's the seed pod and should probably be cut right now so the tube can nourish itself. Otherwise all the nourishment of the plant goes to the seed pod. You can cut it and dry it out if you want. I usually just cut them off.

Dustin

Has no one seen "Invasion of the Body Snatchers"? It is a seed pod, but not a harmless iris seed pod. The invasion has begun. Run for your lives, the pod people are coming. :)

Well, I can see this subject has been run into the ground already but I will add just this. All flowers/plants produce "fruit"-which in some cases is BONAFIDE fruit and in some cases it is the seed. And making that fruit is tough work and takes a lot of the nutrients from the flower.

I say this all because SOMETIMES it is good to pluck em and sometimes it is not. In some cases, like say...sunflowers, larkspur, etc. you can collect the seeds after they have formed and start new plants (or let them fall to the ground and do the work themselves. In OTHER cases, you can get RID of the pods and for your efforts, you will get a SECOND blooming! WA-HOO! Some flowers like this would be snapdragons and petunias. Anyway.

That is all I wanted to say. Now you now WAY more about seedpods than you wanted to! :-)
