The upright green bits that follow on from the flowers darken to brown/yellow, open up and it you tip them up the seeds fall out. They are ripe.

Or just let them seed themselves around the garden

I don't recognize it from the photo. Can you post a few more? Does it flower at all? What sort of soil have you got and where are you?
