I have been searching for these flower seeds and can't find them anywhere. I would appreciate it very much if you could tell me where I can purchase the seeds for the Skeleton Flower.
You should be able to find seed sources by a Google Search. Search for Skeleton Flower seeds or Diphylleia Grayi flower.
Also Ebay can be a good way to find more unusual seeds. Make sure you check the sellers feedback to assure they have good feedback from customers.
I want to grow skeleton flowers and have ordered seeds. How hardy are they for the St Louis area which I believe is zone 6? And they are perennial, right?

Hello I am trying to grow some skeleton flowers from seed but they have not germinated after a few weeks. How long do they take to germinate or should I buy a ready formulated plant . I have them indoors at the moment. Thank you for your attention . Paula
Yes, it would be much MUCH easier to get an already established plant in this situation. This article will give you more information on growing these: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/flowers/skeleton-flowers/how-to-grow-skeleton-flowers.htm
I have been given some seeds for the skeleton flower. What are the procedures necessary to successfully incubate the seeds and at what stage do you transplant them.
They will require cold stratification to germinate. Keep them in your refrigerator until you are ready to plant, since they normally grow in colder regions.
You are in zone 9, so you may find that they die off in the summer.Just make sure to plant them in the shade since they cannot handle direct sunlight at all.
When you cast them out under other plants, or in a fully shaded location, then you will only need a light dusting of soil to cover them. Keep the soil misted, and moist but not soaking wet.

is it possible to grow skeleton flowers indoors?
This is not a good candidate for indoor gardening.
I bought some Diphylleia grayi seeds online and when they came, another name was attached to the paper that came with it. The seeds I got are dark in color and oval in shape. I can't find any pictures of the seeds online to compare them to confirm if they are Diphylleia grayi seeds. Can you help?
I couldn't find a seed photo either. If the plant package has a different name I would contact the seller to explain. If he says it is skeleton flower, go ahead and plant it in rich, well-draining soil in part shade with lots of organic matter.
We live in NE wisconsin, zone 5 where temps are still in low 40’s at night. Can we successfully grow this perennial flower from seed in our gardens by planting the tiny seeds there now? Dave
Yes, the flower will winter over in your zone.
