    Whimgrinder,

    I have edited the post to say unknown species, as it was pointed out to me that is probably was not gorgona. I have not opened the pods, but perhaps I will do one. I kind of figured as they were from last years flowers, they could mature on or off the vine. Should they not be mature, I can still get the pods later in the season, and will remail to anyone who gets the green ones. Whatever the species, I would be happy to send you one if you wish.

    Wireman, regardless of your clime, I can send you a pod if you wish. Perhaps you could try it as an annual.

    OK, I'll take some of the sagittaria. Can't find your email. PM me. Thanks.

    Thanks, pearldiver, but I'll pass, since it seems likely that this is the same species I already grow. Thanks anyway :-)

    The pods do dry out and split open into fingers like a basket. The seeds have a wing all around them and are spread by the wind. Opened dried pods are woody and very beautiful.

    It appears one person's pod was underdeveloped, and I will resend. There are still six pods left if anyone wants one.

    I've got mine hanging from a shelf since one is still green. They are drying and I hope they will open up soon. I think they will in time.
