With the White Snakeroot (Ageratina altissima) it is part of the family tree of Asteraceae, and it is also closely related to Ageratina miquihuana. They are part of the Eupatorieae flower and have very similar ancestors such as Lesser snakeroot.
One specific adaptation that all the species in my group that many of the flowering plants have adapted bright or unique colours to attract specific pollinators. This ensures that the flower will stand out from the rest of their background (normally a green leaf) and hope that the brighter and unique flowers will lead more pollinators to itself, over all the other plants.
One unique adaptation that I observed was with the Garden Cosmos and how it has adapted to have foliage that is like a fern and stem like. It seems like this allows the plant to grow in areas where access to water is less frequent.
