Name this plant

Asked October 11, 2018, 1:43 PM EDT

Dear Folks, I've been harvesting wildflower seeds for a 4 acre Bee & Butterfly Habit that I am planting. I'm wondering if you can please identify this plant for me ( I don't want to plant anything bad). I harvested these from a ditch next to a wetland. One flower cluster by itself on the end of a long slim stem. Thank you for your kind reply. Ron Feldhaus 612-770-1639

It is very difficult to identify plants, even when flowers and leaves are present. You've only given us a dried seedhead.

It looks like a member of the carrot family, perhaps the invasive Queen Anne's lace:
