Desert Trumpet or Bottle Stopper, Eriogonum inflatum.  Those are actually inflated stems.

Thanks Jerry,  I have tried to move some to my yard (because I think they are cool) But they always die. So then I thought I'll just take some seeds from the seed pod. Just to find they are not seed pods at all....They are always empty. Now I know why.

The tips of the uninflated stems might have seeds.  Though I think the problem is getting the seeds after they're ripe but before they get lost in the soil.

And the rarest plant I've seen, the Cedar Breaks Gilia (Ipomopsis spicata tridactyla). Looks like it's only found at Cedar Breaks National Monument in Utah and it only has 13 observations on iNat. It's a subspecies of the Spiked Ipomopsis.

@Chris Clem, get some of those little mesh bags with the pull strings on them. We us them for flowers to keep them pure.
