Do any of you get seeds from your hardy mums?

8 years ago

I know that most hardy mums--what are sometimes called the florist type--are hybrids and don't come true from seed. However, I'm doing an article on mum propagation and thought I should include all the options. It occurred to me, though, that I've never found any seeds on mine. So I thought I'd better ask whether anybody has!

I've had a few people send me what were supposed to be hardy mum seeds in trades, but they always turned out to be pure chaff. From info I've seen online, though, I'm guessing those seeds are pretty small--no more than a couple millimeters long. Since photos can be deceiving, I thought I'd better ask whether anybody can confirm that for me?
