A wildflower in central Illinois, I thought it was a Heath Aster, but believe I may have been mistaken.
Flowers are small, appx a half inch across, many flowers; blooms in the fall. Plant may attain several feet in height.

It's probably White Panicle Aster (Symphyotrichum lanceolatum), but Willowleaf aster (Symphyotrichum praealtum) is another possibility.

I think it's the Willowleaf.
Thanks Kent.

Wrong season for that. Fleabane is more spring, photo from deep fall.
