White Wildflower ID

cpackjr(z6 WV)August 18, 2014

Can someone help me with an ID on this plant? It is growing in a roadside waste area. About 2 feet tall with many spikes of white flowers. It has been in bloom for several weeks now.

Could be, flowers certainly match, but those leaves look different.
They are clustered at center with flowers radiating from the center......But it may be. I will try to get another look at it tomorrow with Buddleja in mind.

The leaves are those of Buddleia orientalis although the florets are much larger than B. orientalis.
