Hemp agrimony

Butterflies get high on this plant.  It grows tall and its pinky mauve flowers with white whiskers give a touch of colour to the end of summer. 
 
 
The leaves look a bit like hemp which gives it both its English name Hemp Agrimony, and its Latin name Eupatorium cannabinum, like cannabis.  It's no good for smoking though.
