Seed Pod

Caption: As you would imagine from a tree that flowers in late winter, not many of the seed do get pollinated. This is not a particularly good image, but it does show a mature seed pod, burst open, and ready to release the two shiny black seeds, while this year's new flowers open on stems that still hold last year's leaves.

Great & interesting photo Wilma. Never knew what that Witch Hazel looked like, much less know about it's seeds & blooms.

Interesting, Wilma! I don't think I've ever seen a seed pod on my red "Diane" witch hazel. Never thought about why not. If you'd asked, I would have said I thought they were wind pollinated and didn't need insects. Mine are still blooming and I have seen some bees around though only on other late winter blossoms.
