Hi.

Sorry, I searched the net and just could not id this plant. I was thinking some type of milk week or lythrum, but just could not find it. It is beautiful, though.

thanks for trying.. I have searched and searched. I would love to put this in our butterfly garden at Lake Tobosofkee. Hope it will one day be an attraction for butterfly lovers. We have a wonderful temperate climate here. AND, not crowded...

It isn't really a marginal guys, just can handle it real well, it is a native probably, but I would mess up if I told u Eupatoriums, or big words like those,

It is pretty - I do like it. I have no clue what it is though. Have you tried posting in the plant ID forum?
