What kind of plant are these seeds from???

OK - I never planted this, and it has never been in my garden until this year. I don't remember what the plant looks like with leaves/flowers (if it even has any). I can say currently it is broken in half (by me) and thrown out. It stood maybe 2 ft tall, very spindly, and I think the stalks/stems are a red colour. I have attached a picture of the seeds which keep getting stuck to every from my sweater, to my jeans, track pants, shoelaces.....

Any idea what plant this is from??? These suckers are worse than burrs almost!!!! :evil:

Your plant/seeds are Bidens frondosa (Common Beggar's Ticks).....a weed
Your plant started from someone shedding one of these seeds that were probably on their clothes
