Flower of the Day: March 25, 2021. Baccharis salicifolia

Identifying this shrub from my phone’s image search turned into a mystery game. I found image upon image of different shrubs sharing similarities to this one. According to one particular image descriptions, this type of shrub is found along water sources; we found this shrub near a duck pond. It’s called seepwillow, water-wally, and mule fat. The fuzzy and sticky flowers attract butterflies. I’m interested to how it will look after the flowers have bloomed.
