Mystery seed pod?

Asked November 16, 2019, 5:28 PM EST

I found this pod under a flowering bush that has beautiful red flowers during the summer. Can you tell me if it is a Calyanthus seed pod?

We are not sure of the identity of the seed pod. We do not have enough information. If this is a wet area, and there was a groundcover/perennial growing underneath or nearby the shrub, a possibility may be a Green Arrow Arum seed pod

Look around in the area, and see what the flowers look like next spring and send us more photos.


The pictures you sent reminded me that I planted Calla Lillies in that spot. Thanks for your help. I think they are poisonous so I will not handle the pods any longer. Thanks for your help!
