is anyone familiar with this flower? a friend's mother gave me a baggie of these, which she called needle and thread flowers. she said hummingbirds love them. the seeds themselves are small and round. any ideas of what they are? i've googled needle and thread and it is a grass...

RE: needle and thread seeds

Can you post a pic of the seeds with a penny or some other object as a reference for the size of the seeds?
I too searched for needle and thread plant and just got grasses.
I wonder if it might be spider plant (Cleome hassleriana)?
Wild guess on my part but you could search for images of spider plant seeds to see if yours match or not.

Good luck! :)
