It is very easy to miss the seed pods. They can resemble twigs, or fat stems, or bean pods, and contain very small and hairy seeds. (They kind of remind me of milkweed or dandelion a bit.) Cutting off spent blooms will remove potential seed pods. Potassium can help with seed formation, but make sure that the soil does not have plenty, already.
