Can someone help me with an ID on this plant? It is growing in a roadside waste area. About 2 feet tall with many spikes of white flowers. It has been in bloom for several weeks now.

Butterfly bush, Buddleja davidii.

RE: White Wildflower ID

Could be, flowers certainly match, but those leaves look different.
They are clustered at center with flowers radiating from the center......But it may be. I will try to get another look at it tomorrow with Buddleja in mind.

RE: White Wildflower ID

Yep it is butterfly bush.

RE: White Wildflower ID

The leaves are those of Buddleia orientalis although the florets are much larger than B. orientalis.
