I have a few dead flowers in a vase and of course none of them have a bulb or roots. In the middle of the flower there are what looks to be like black seeds and they are long and ashy. The more I handled them, the more black my fingers turned. I want to plant some of them..which I think are star lilies, red crocus or daylilies..I believe it is some type of lily but I have no idea what kind of flower this is. A pic of it is below. And sorry but it is dead at this point...:(

Gosh..it's really hard to tell what it is. It does look like some type of lily but lily seeds are hard and doesn't come from the inside of the flower. The petals will fall and then a pod forms that contains the seeds..if it produces seeds.
