This could be *Vernonia arborea*.

Yes even i guess Vernonia, (may be V. acuminata, pls check correct name for the same)

My photos are all low-light-long shots making it difficult for all of us to ID.

Requesting id: observed this flowering herb/ shrub in full bloom, attracting variety of butterflies. Couldn’t zero on species.

Is it Vernonia? I think this can otherwise be Centratherum sp. (may be C. anthelminticum).
