This was my first year for the plant so they were small; however the book I use for butterflies indicated this was a white flower that butterflies liked. This was an understatement this fall. It seemed everyday on this small bush there were at least ten hairstreaks feasting,

This is a lovely shrubby white mistflower which is drought-tolerant and native to my area of Texas. It can get tall, but can be pruned back a bit to a more desirable shape or height if desired. When blooming, butterflies are attracted to it. Reseeds easily, so remove seed if you don't want volunteers.
