RE: what is it?

It would be helpful for you to give the location. What color are the flowers? Is the foliage very narrow?

The only thing that comes to mind is Standing Cypress, Ipomopsis rubra.

A description of the shape of the flower is also necessary.

Here is a link that might be useful: Ipomopsis rubra
