sea holly

I want to start collecting sea holly seeds but I've never done it before. Some of the flowers are brown and I assume that's when they are ready to collect seeds. But where's the seeds? Are the seeds like liatris or will little seeds eventually in a container?

RE: sea holly

The seeds are quite similar in size and shape to purple coneflower seeds. The 'flower' will dry out and one day when you touch it, it will start to fall apart and you can gather the seeds - what is left is basically a big seed cone. At that point, they'll be obvious. It's a bit early for it to dry out, so be patient :-)
