I was at my sisters yesterday and I remember she had purple flowers in her fromt yard. Previous owners planted it. The flowers are now all gone, the were very nice, but I couldn't describe them even if I wanted to. Anyway here are the seed pods, they are 5mm and each and it looks to have 3 cavities, even tho I only see 1 seed per pod, they may have fallen already. The leaves are long and thin and it was a very short plant. Here are the pods:

Helping the world one seed at a time

When weeding, the best way to make sure you are removing a weed and not a valuable plant is to pull on it. If it comes out of the ground easily, it is a valuable plant. Mary Ann LaPensee

The big leaves you see there are NOT from the seed pod plant, theyre a lily. It is a grape hyacinth pod
