Scabiosa Chile Black Seeds

Hi this year i brought Scabiosa Chile Black plant and it was really nice, the bee's loved it. Now a lot of the flower heads  have dried up so i thought id try to collect dome seeds to plant next year.

Are these the seeds?

    Yes, that is a scabious seed.

    You may be able to overwinter the plants if we have a mild winter.  Last year I grew Scabiosa atropurpurea Fata Morgana.  Like your Chile black, it is supposed to be an annual, but it flowered last year, was left in,  and has flowered  this year from May and is still going strong.  I expect it to die in a hard winter, like you I will be collecting seed. There is one plant that has a pinkier flower than the others, that is the one I will take seed from.
