Ageratina havanensis Flowers 8854

Speaking of shrubs that don’t look like sunflowers but that are indeed in the same botanical family, here are some flowers (and a few buds) of an Ageratina havanensis bush, known as shrubby boneset and white mistflower. I could have cropped my subject more tightly, but I chose to leave extra space so you could get more of a feel for the leaves and also so there’d be more green to contrast with the pale pink of the flowers.

Like the last couple of photographs, this one comes from the greenbelt adjacent to Great Hills Park on November 4th.
