    That’s Joe Pye Weed, not Poke. I’ve got that all throughout the backs of my perennial beds. Lovely, maintenance free. Gets about 5 feet tall, pale pink flowers at the tops of the stems late summer. Looks pretty in the winter garden (seed heads).

    I have a lot of this too. HUGE ROOTS. Like a 4 foot long carrot. Not kidding. Ugh.

    Not pokeweed, and not joe pye.
    I think it might be Late Boneset (Eupatorium serotinum).
