Maureen, Hugh is correct, the plant is a Sedum. It is full of butterflies every year.

Thank you Aubrey..it's a beautiful shot.

Thank you Dave, There were that many butterflies there at the same time, I was unable to name some of them, but most were definitely the Painted Ladies. The small tortoiseshell and painted lady are very much alike.
