Dried flower head

Greenville, SC(Zone 7a)

I found this in a guy garden who usually has interesting plants. The head has small spikes in it that kind of hurt when I picked it up. It has tiny black seeds like celosia seeds. So I think it's a type of celosia but it was fairly large. The dead plant came up to my hip, so like 3 feet high. Any help would be great

not sure…maybe dock?

checked out picture of dock and I don't think its that. The seed capsules are much smaller

I think an amaranth seed head could be spiky when dry, and would have tiny seeds.

I also thought that that too. But I'm trying to think of amaranth with black black seed. Because the seeds look just like yellow amaranth seeds but just black

Love-lies-bleeding (Amarathus caudatus) has black seeds: http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/go/2/
