Any help is appreciated!

What type of area was it growing in,boggy,woody,open field? I haven't seen any of those in this area. I would love some seeds if you collect any LMK, maybe we can trade some seeds.
Looks a bit like Gomphocarpus, in the Asclepiadaceae family.
Was this flowering recently? I wouldn't expect this plant to flower until late summer.
