Flower clusters

A month or so ago, I went off to favorite spot for butterflies. It’s a place I go in the spring, for elfin species, and I’d heard it was good for Coral hairstreaks in midsummer. I had no luck at all looking for hairstreaks, but I found these curious flowers on my walk in, and came back to them on the way out:

Rain was threatening, perhaps the reason why I didn’t see any butterflies. The flowers were on a low, shrubby plant on the edge of pine woods at the site. After the flowers, clustered bunches of green fruit form on the end of the stalks. I haven’t identified the plant yet – I should have photographed the leaves to help identify it.
