Here’s a plant most of us ignore until its seeds follow us home.
The flowers of Beggar Ticks (Bidens frondosa) are rather inconspicuous but each of its numerous seeds has two tiny hooks that cling to fabric and fur.
I bet you recognize the seeds on this sweater…
…which explains why another name for the plant is “Sticktight.”
