Campsis Grandiflora et al
« on: August 09, 2016, 07:53:05 PM »
Wondered if you could help me with a query I have.  we have a Campsis Grandiflora and I noticed that when it forms its seeds, only one of the flowers on its spray of flowers seems to have been pollinated.  We noticed this also when in African some yeas ago with other similar kinds of plants.  Do you know if there a particular name for this type of plant - just a  passing phase of mine  needing to know something.
Not a very good photo of the seedpod but you'll get the idea of what I am trying to say.
