Impress your friends by using a fun word that horticulturists often use, “Viviparous.”
Viviparous plants produce seeds that germinate before they detach from the parent plant. Mangrove seedlings often germinate and grow under its own energy while attached to the parent tree. In citrus, the seed sometimes germinates in overripe fruit.
New this year, the catalog “Cooks Garden” is offering a viviparous perennial: an edible chive that has viviparous seed heads that look like Dr. Seuss invented them.
