Most plants are dormant in my area. I noticed a bush which appeared to still be in bloom. The leaves were still green but the white was from a fuzz cotton like fiber. Curious about the ID of this plant. What is it ?

Baccharis halimifolia. The fuzzy bits are the seeds.

The fuzz are the seeds. I agree with Tom - Baccharis but I'm not sure on the species.

According to plants.usda.gov, B. halimifolia is the only species native to AR.

Baccharis halimifolia it is. Thanks for the ID, information, and all the help. A knew plant ID for me. It is a very interesting plant especially in the fall and early winter.
