they need to mature on the plant before it's cut, then they dry out.  The birds will probably be happy to eat them in their immature state 

Native or Non Native ?

The advantage of the native plant species is as food for the native animal species, especially the larvae of native insects. 

I grow a selection of native plants and you're right Redwing, they're not the showiest but they suit me, my garden and its inhabitants.

What's the green thing that some of these are in, what are the white balls on?

How has this site changed your gardening?

It hasn't changed my gardening much, I still nurture what others call weeds, encourage wildlife that some would spray with insecticide, grow thugs, shun chemicals, have grass with extras, pots of germinating seeds everywhere, break all the rules. All much the same.

The planter sounds like a good idea, it's too easy to lose the ones you want in the garden. Especially if you have a weed count like mine

What is this plant.

I think this is another one like Euphorbia lathyris, distributed by aliens. I've never introduced  it but every few years another lot appear. Some are variegated.
