hollyhock (black knight)
hollyhocks make a seed pod, you can break the pod open with your hands (fingers) and the seeds are in a disc, they are brown to black in color (usually the lighter the flower the lighter the seed color, since you have black knight yours shoudl be black)

Don't know about the others I have never grown any of those.

the seed site is wonderful and has helped me alot. One thing about the columbine is that the seed pod has to mature and it takes forever. (at least if your as impatient as I am) If you harvest to soon the seeds won't be there. So wait until the seed pod is entirely brown but before it opens a hole in the bottom for the seeds to escape through. Needless to say I was out there everyday checking lol. Mine usually had about 75 seeds per pod so I was able to trade a lot.
