This is about 2' tall and looks like it is starting to branch out a bit

It appears to be New England Aster (Symphyotrichum novae-angliae) There are a couple of other things it could be, though, so until it blooms it is difficult to be 100% certain of that.

New England Aster (Symphyotrichum novae-angliae)

It's commonly grown in gardens and there are many cultivars available.

Thank you, that looks like it could be. I'm going to leave it and see what blooms :)

Here is the bloom, very pretty but kind of ratty and naked on the stems. Will definitely need to move to the back of a bed. Thanks for your help with the ID!

New England Aster it is. I tip my hat to you.

They are easy to move, probably best to do it right after a killing frost this fall or right after they start growing next spring.
