One of the nightshades, I always forget which is which. The one known as Woody Nightshade I think
They're not ripe yet but yes
Agree Chrissy, I missed that in the OP. Nothing grows naturally like that Roops. Nor stay that way without frequent snips
I can't see the leaves clearly but my first thought was godetia, now called clarkia, (or maybe it's clarkia that's now called godetia)
It's mallow family. Is the picture part of a shrub or does it look like an annual or a perennial?
Once they're ripe I'd remove them from the pods if they haven't escaped already and make sure they're really dry. Then store in paper envelopes, not plastic
They'll go brown or black and the pod will dry off, then they're ready
Not sure if acers grow well from cuttings, the fancy ones are grafted. I'd try them outside in the shade if you have another try.
How about a photo?
