Where is the plant located? It looks like Baccharis, possibly Sea Myrtle (Baccharis halimifolia) . The one in the photo is a female.

I agree, it looks like the Sea Myrtle.
Here in south Georgia this is a common plant along the roadsides. Very pretty to look at from a distance. But a few managed to find there way into my garden and...not so pretty. I removed them before they had a chance to re-seed. I prefer to admire this plant from afar.

Here is a link written by someone with a positive opinion of the plant:

It's by the ditch at the end of the driveway. The picture is one of the branches that fell off during the last hurricane. We are on the coast of NC. Thank-you for your help with this.

Rolling on the floor laughing "where is it?" "by the ditch at the end of the driveway"

Its the sort of answers I used to get from my kids: "where did you hurt yourself?" "Right here on my elbow"

Sorry, couldn't help myself. Smiling
