Should you ever have opportunity to take any clear closeups of the fully mature seeds, I am interested to correlate seed characteristics with plant morphology , even though others have been not yet been successful at this type of correlation.
I find that the seeds of M.umbellata subspecies umbellata are very consistent in seed characteristics and resultant plant morphology...same is true for M.umbellata subspecies orientalis and I am at a loss why others are unable to see the consistencies...
