Thanks Ryan. It took me a year to really ID this. I found these seed heads last year. Had no idea what they were. There were no flowers, which made it even more difficult. i finally was so frustrated,i deleted the spotting!
This time , I spotted it along with the flowers,and that made it so much more easier.
