not butterfly bush...

robyn.riceApril 8, 2013

I ordered some baby shrubs a couple of years ago that came to me in horrible shape-totally got ripped off. Along with them, though I had ordered Butterfly Bush. It actually lived and now I am creating butterfly/hummingbird area. Problem is, this isn't butterfly bush and I have no clue what it is. It gets little white flowers on it but I don't have any idea what it is. Anyone have ideas? I have a photo of the leaves up close and then the whole thing for overall picture.

These are invasive weeds back there, check the weed list for your state.
