As my post puts across, i wish i had seen this vine to be able to tell you if it has seed pods or flower head seeds like sunflower. Regrets but as i have no idea you can argue back and forth.
Regards.

I think we are quibbling over the terminology of a pod vs a seed head: Mexican flame vine or Senecio confusus bears white hairy seeds in a head which looks like an old man's beard (Hence the name Senecio :-))

Masud sahab is right that flame vines does not bear pods. The image is attached. To split hairs further, the fruit of all Asters family members are called cypsela.

I also have ismene fistalis, bloomed regularly two years for me but this year I have no blooms. May be due to shifting at a sunny place?
Sulfur Queen bloomed first time, I received three small bulbs from UK three years ago but they didnot show babies yet. This plant needs full shade and its bloom lasts four to five days.

The shoking pink crinum is what I would love to have. Now I will have to hunt it.
