ID tall plant?

Looking for an ID for this big bruiser. At first (when it was small) thought it was balsam but no. Approx 5' tall, pink stripe down center of leaves. I have a creeping suspicion that it's a big roadside weed... Thanks in advance -

Oenothera of some kind

Ah..! But thought they bloomed in the spring? No booms yet. Is it worth leaving it in?

This stuff springs up every year in the tomatoes. Nasty weed. Kill it. Mine got 6 feet tall and 3 feet wide in 2 months before the wind knocked it over. Although herbaceuous, before succumbing to wind, the green did appear to be developing streaks of grey/brown, some seem to get 'half-woody'.
