This is one set of leaves from a plant growing in my backyard. Unfortunately I was running out of daylight so only grabbed the leaves. There are several of plants strewn about (not growing in clumps). Each plant has one main, very tall purple (with a bit of green) stem. They’re at least six feet tall and have multiple offshoots at the top where clumps of small flowers are starting to grow. The closest I can come is Garden Angelica – it looks very much like it. Any thoughts? Thanks!

    This looks to me like the leaves on my Swamp Hibiscus.
