On vacation in Nova Scotia, we saw this plant in several locations around the western shore. This one was growing along a pathway and appeared to have been planted there. From a distance could be mistaken for Joe Pye Weed, but up close you see that the flowers have actually finished and only twigs remain. Closeup of the leaves included.

    Maybe common valerian (Valeriana officinalis)? check it out and see if you have a match. Best wishes!
