This flower is scentless. The flowers are replaced by hairless
flattened seedpods, about 2" long and ½" wide, with several
seeds inside. The seedpod, which is initially green, gradually
turns brown, splitting open into curled segments, flinging out
the seeds. The seeds are dark and oblong to reniform in shape.
