I was the naughty person who walked over the herbacious border to hold the Akebia seed head for the photo and it was weird, sort of woody on the outside but that incredible pale lilac colour.
Nut, on RHS site, re Akiba it says it produces seed head if 'pollinated by another clone'. I expect that makes more sense to you than it does to me.
