Not so common (?) roadside species

adidas(6/7)August 6, 2014

Not sure if this pic is clear enough for an ID but this was found growing in open swampy area along w/jewel weed, Agrimonia parviflora, Mimulus ringens, Joe Pye....wet, edge species. NC mtns. I can get a close-up if necessary. Thank-you for any ideas!

Thank-you for your input! I'll give it a wild guess and say V. altissima....could it be that?
