    This plant is growing on the edge of the road between our house and my Daddy's house. I've seen it in the years past and the butterflies love it. It's blooms haven't fully opened yet, but they have little cluster kinda of like yarrow. The plant itself is about 5 feet tall. I wonder if it is butterfly milkweed? Hope someone can tell me what it is. It is a really pretty plant!!

    Possibly a Butterfly Bush...do the flowers grow in clusters in the form of a bunch of grapes?
