It looks as if it could be in the in the family Onagraceae. However the flower structure appears to be atypical. I have found an American web site that could be helpful. http://www.wildflowers-and-weeds.com/Plant_Families/Onagraceae.htm

Take it into the botanic gardens?

The flower will be shrivelled, so it will be an Oenothera - the fruit and leaf shape might be enough to get to a species if flowers can't be found.

I have taken a specimen to ANBG, and David Albrecht is looking at it.
