Mystery Seed of the Week 185

This week’s mystery seeds are from a perennial grown in gardens.


It is also native to western North America.


Hint:  The genus is involved in both cloth and oil.

Do you recognize what plant these seeds are from? If you choose to, please leave a comment with your ideas.

New mystery seeds and Seed of the Week answers are posted on Tuesdays.

Edit: The answer is now posted.

    So glad you found the hint helpful.
