Mystery Seed of the Week 252


Unlike last week’s mystery seeds, these popular flowers are widespread.


We’ve had some similar-shaped seeds. Don’t they look like rockets with the exhaust flames shooting out behind? (The white object is a grain of rice added for scale.)

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

Mystery Seed answers and new Mystery Seeds are posted on Tuesdays. Next week, however, we are having a special activity so the answers will be posted in two weeks.

Edit:  The answer is now posted.

    Centaurea cyanus?

    I think the blue tint gives it away 🙂
