This looks sort of like some type of milkweed...or is it something else?
Not milkweed but I'll leave the ID to the experts! As far as I know most milkweed has a distinctive flower....colours may vary but the bloom has this shape....

It a species of Ironweed, aka Vernonia. Ironweeds are native plants and attract butterflies, bees and other pollinators. Most are late summer bloomers.
Excellent, thanks!! :)
