I dunno what it is. Six or seven stalks with all the bushy stuff and white flowerets on it. About six feet tall... obviously being encircled by a vine (Clematis?) but it tried that in the Spring and got defeated.

I'm pretty sure it's a (censored) volunteer weed-ie thingie and should go the way of that damn diefenbachia in front on the ground... OUT.

She, however, thinks it's a pretty plant and wants me to try to save it. (This is the woman who can kill Aloes [ ! ], destroy most annual and perennial plants and only has success with Christmas Cacti and Philodendron..)

You helped me out with that Japanese "Monk-Lilly" a few years back.... what do you have on this one?

A white Aster of some sort I'd guess, or maybe a Joe Pie weed.......... With a morning glory vine tangled in it.

It's hard to tell from the distance of the photo. It might be Filipendula ulmaria or Cerastium glomeratum.

Can you post a close-up of a flower cluster, and the leaves?

Looks just like the white Aster out in our "meadow garden".... Lancet leaves, are what make me guess that..... The Joe pie has rounder leaves, and more....... Cauliflower like flower clusters.....

It could be wild Clemantas, there is lots of it here in Tulsa this year. It is very invasive.

If it's wild clematis, is it a "saver" or do it "go wid de Flo"? I LOVE Clematis, but I'm used to the trailing vine type with the big showy flower in the Spring... I haven't destroyed this as yet as it reminds me very much of an arbor on a property I once owned... it let to a side yard and the damn thing was basically just the plant, the original arbor construction having long since rotted away. The new owner was not as enamoured as I and it took three men an hour to pull it and get it chopped up.

Esther says: Buddleia (butterfly bush) That bush around here has purple flowers and a leaf that looks a lot like a pot plant, not that I would know.:)

In the "Insert Image" dialog box, uncheck the square next to "Retrieve remote file and reference locally"

The flowers are wrong for Buddleia. They look like this:

Buddleia has three flower forms, conical panicle, panicle like clusters and cymne like panicles (which are ball shaped). The leaf looks like Buddleia. The flower form would be very unusual but not impossible. It would be a hybrid. Very curious to see what it ends up being.

I had the box unchecked previously, but--- whatever --- here's the closeup (I got closers-up, too).

That's the best pic so far.
