Are they the seed heads or flowers.If seed heads could it be a clematis???

It's so pretty! Especially with all the butterflies :-)

We've just had huge excitement in our country because of ONE swallowtail butterfly, and look at all yours! Don't know what it is, but please don't dig it up.

Butterflys would not be drawn to seed heads so those are the flowers... no idea what it is but as Steragram says please don't chop it down.

It's a flower of some kind....Aha! I think that it's a Buttonbush (Cephalanthus species) of some kind.

LOL! I hope it was very BRIGHT, VISIBLE string! This bush is just lovely :-) We don't seem to have it in the UK - I wonder why not, it's so beautiful.
What an exciting adventure, finding out what's in your yard.
