2nd submission – LAURA735 said maybe Joe Pye weed, but maybe Snake Root, and asked for more pictures. This plant is growing in a shady wet area and it 7-8 feet tall, so I think too tall for Snake Root, but flowers maybe too white for Joe Pye? I was getting pictures of the butterflies so I don't have better pictures of the leaves or overall plant.

    Thank you for these follow up photos JFWorthy3!
    I’m still leaning toward joe-pye-weed, the second photo show the stem has whorled leaves. Check out the included one below for information for all the species of Eutrochium. According to this link E. purpurem species often hybridizes with other species resulting in vary offspring. For this reason, I can’t be certain which species you have. Best wishes JFWorthy3!

    According the link below, this Joe-pye-weed species can grow taller than & 7ft. In my own gardening experience with most plants, they can be varied in heights depending the growing condition.
