Family & I had a cookout up in the mountains at a small campsite. Found this growing at the foot of a trashbin. Can anyone tell me what wildflower this might be? Thought it was so pretty. I want to go back latet and try and collect some seeds from it I tip my hat to you.

Whatever it is, it is not a good idea to collect from the wild in a campground area. Better to identify the plant and obtain it from a nursery or plant seller. Thumbs up

I don't think there is a problem from collecting from a trashcan plant. There is more concern about it being damaged, trampled, dumped on, stepped on, dog peed on and otherwise abused next to the trash can at the camping spot.

The OP was only wanting to collect seeds...not dig up the plant.
