This plant is common on road edges and unused fields in Arkansas / Oklahoma. Butterflies, bees, flies and other insects seek the nectar. What is it?

Agreed. The stuff is often called "Sericea". It isn't native but has been planted for erosion control and for "wildlilfe food" and now is spread all over the south.
