Notes:

Perennial (or readily reseeds) bush about 3 feet tall. It is shaped similar to an Oak Leaf Hydrangea. Upon closer observation, the flowers are aster type in small clusters. The leaves are the showiest part and the flowers are thinly spaced. The leaves are fuzzy like fig leaves but not as thick. The plant does have a sticky sap. Leaves in the photo are some of the smaller ones. Sorry I do not have a photo of the bush. Had expected to ID it from the flowers and leaves.
