     Sorry gd  I've no idea ! 

  • We have never noticed seeds on our tree, and think they have to be grown in a much warmer climate to produce seed - however I may be wrong - and perhaps someone can enlighten us granma.

    If you have cones form, the seeds are in the cones. A monkey puzzle tree near us had cones, they chopped it down, so I took one. It got passed around a bit as the " Any idea what this is" mystery object.

    I have spare verbena bonariensis seeds if anyone would like.

    Life's tragedy is that we get old too soon and wise too late.

  • Thanks for the link fidgetbones. Our M.P. tree is just over 35 years old - still a youngster, so perhaps that is the reason for no cones. Or perhaps our climate is too mild for it not to produce cones.

  • Bright star I would like some of your seed, not sure how the swap works though !!

    I've sent you a pm Chrissy, hopefully it worked. I just tapped on your nickname which opened your biography and a message button.
