I recently moved into a new house and the plant that was here had seeds so I harvested them. There were a lot of them and the pants themselves attracted bees and butterflies. What kind of plant are these seeds from?

Thedecoguy, I don't recall the plant being a marigold.

Ken, I moved into the house in early July. The plant itself had long flower stalks I think. I've ruled out delphinium also.

Maybe Eupatorium. What color were the flowers?

Elecampane? Elecampane is tall with yellow flowers and large leaves.

Carol, I have no idea what color the flowers were. I don't think they were Eupatorium though.

Definitely Asteraceae family.

What about Liatris?
