    I grew a Cobaea Scanden plant this year for the very first time! The instructions said it would be around 6 to 10 ft. tall. Well.....I have it growing up the tv antennae out back and it is just about touching the satellite dish up there!! It's grown to about 20 or so feet high. And it has big purple blooms(VERY strange-looking!) on it. It has done quite well. But.....I am not sure where or how to get seeds from it. :shrug: :help: Does anyone have any knowledge on this plant? (If you want...search for the plant name and you can see the plant and blooms yourself.)

    Usually you find the seeds at the base of the flower, and it should start developing after the flower dies. The base of the flower will start swelling up as the seed developes.
