I found this growing at my daughter’s new home in Gainesville, GA. I have been told it was a Yarrow (Achilea) but I am unsure as the leaves are not fern like and it has green berries/seeds that turn a dark blue growing on it, with two different colored flowers growing from the same bud. It has a bark stem. I thought it a very pretty and unusual plant. Can you verify its identity?

    Beautiful. Sometimes I feel like a ole tom cat marking his spot. It makes it so much easier to follow the breaking news on Walter’s mystery plants. Such is the case here. I am not sure but I think it is a Buddleia. Compare to this link http://www.mountainvalleygrowers.com/budxbicolor.htm

    From my “investigations” I have come to the conclusion that this is indeed a Lantana. I thank you all for taking the time to reply and helping me to identify this plant.

    Sorry Bobby – it is an old-fashioned Lantana.
