Tall weed(?) in flower beds of new(older) home

SC_newbiebevJune 19, 2013

I moved in to a older home that the previous owner has spent a lot of garden time on. But right now I have a plant is over running all the hostas and day lilys. I have tried searching and have found things that are close but not quite. Thanks for any help for this first timer.

I have not figured out just what that is yet either but it grows prolifically and gets a very large root that can go quite deep in the soil if allowed. I think it is an annual and grows from seed.

Compare your plant to Obedient Flower, Physostegia virginiana.
