The Mystery Tree

Every year at Lake Roosevelt I tell my husband I want one of these trees. I don't know what they are but they are hardy. Summers temperatures average 100 degrees and the winters are harsh with many feet of snow. The trees are beautiful.

They have tiny leaves. I imagine they make a good mess in the fall.

This year we noticed the pods for the first time. Most of them were green.

However, we found a few that had dried and turned brown. So we picked them and stripped the seeds from them.

The problem now is - How to get the seeds to grow a tree! We have twenty seeds. They look similar to a watermelon seed but they are brown. Very smooth and the sizes vary.

Any suggestions would be appreciated! I have never grown a tree from a seed before and don't even know if it is possible :)
Thanks for stopping by!

We planted a variety of sunflowers this year. Different colors and sizes. I love sunflowers. They are so happy - they just make you feel good.
