    Wish I could see the flowers clearly. Maybe New Jersey tea (Ceanothus americanus)? Check out the included link below and see if you have a match. Click on images to enlarge. If this isn’t that, please resubmit with a better focus of flowers details. Best wishes!

    Thank you so much. After checking the link you mentioned I believe you hit the nail on the head. And, yes, I’ve tried to transplant but it did not survive:(

    You’re welcome! Appreciate for the confirmed ID. Plants in the wild are often not able to survive transplanting. You are likely to have better success with seeds collecting or cuttings. Check out the included link below for propagation methods. Best wishes!
