Ageratina ligustrina--Eupatorium-Asteraceae

Several honey bees were enjoying the flowers of this plant while I was snapping pictures at the UC Botanical Garden. Butterflies also like the white bunches of flowers. This shrub grows about 6-8' tall and flowers in late summer.

If you recall, I'd love to know what species of butterflies come to it. If you have an opinion of its relative value as a butterfly nectar plant -- 'fair' 'good' or 'excellent' -- whatever -- please let me know.
