I thought this might be lythrum, but not seeing any sign of flowers. It is abut 3 feet high

Well, it's not Lythrum. Is it woody or herbaceous (i.e. stems not woody, may die to the ground in winter or other seasons)?

Well. If it is not lythrum which I thought I might have planted, I think I am going to pull it out

I'd sure pull it out if it was purple loosestrife... but that, I'd hang on to for a while to figure out what it is!

I know it is very invasive, atleast in the north. Not sold in any nurseries here.
