While I was watering my flowers this morning I noticed one stalk of my coneflowers had dried flower heads. When I went over to pick off the seed heads to save, I found the whole stalk was dead---The rest of the coneflowers are alive & well The dead flowers heads were completely developed & unless I missed it (not likley) until this last weekend, were well.
.-Obviously I will totally remove the dead flowers, but I was wondering about the seeds--do I assume that the seeds are not developed??

I would assume they're fine. You can always plant a few as an experiment to see.

take the seeds off the head...if they're black, they're developed enough to grow new plants.
