I know 3 of the weeds pictured in this photo, but I would like to know what this beautiful feathery creature is in the middle. It shouldn't associate with such rif raf as horsetail rush, Virginia creeper, and goldenrod.

What a shame. I've got a little piece growing in my flower beds and this display is in a former bed that I haven't dismantled yet. Thanks for the help guys. I tip my hat to you.

@plantladylin I checked out the Alabama link you provided, guess we get to add my county to their database. I have two other photos that doesn't include the friends of dog fennel, I'll try to get one up soon.
