Baccharis neglecta "Poverty Weed" or perhaps Baccharis salicifolia "Mulefat"?

Baccharis salicifolia is unknown in central Texas.

Well, I've already located other specimens of Baccharis salicifolia (Mulefat) in Central TX. So, it is definitely possible! :)

I don't think someone from the UK is in a position to ID our native plants.
I've said as much about my own ID's outside the US, when no local help was offered.

RE: Thin-Leafed Bush?

That reminds me of when I kept seeing a species of common spider that had coloration outside what I had been seeing for decades. I kept saying "These are different.", but was dismissed and told they were normal, or it was a young one or that it was just a weirdly colored individual(s). 2-3 years later, it is big news that there are brown widow spiders in Southern California. The experts were surprised! I just thought "Oh, so that is what they are."
