Hi, Kathleen,
There is every chance that Acis valentina will produce seeds, but I 
don't know if I will be at home to catch them. The fall-blooming 
members of this genus ripen their seeds very quickly (fall Prospero, 
aka Scilla, do also), and I am going to be out of town Sept. 20-Oct. 
5. I'll keep a sharp watch. However, when I move them there may be offsets too.

I forgot to mention the fall-flowering Prospero autumnalis and 
whatever Scilla scilloides is called now, but they are blooming also.

Best regards,
