I need to decide whether to kill it off or keep it.

The flowers are reminding me somewhat of a Buddleja? But not sure about the leaves...

Is this a shrub? Can you take another pic of the whole plant?

Do you have a picture of the whole plant? It reminds me of Lysimachia clethroides without the goosenecking shape.

Edit to add picture

I believe I agree with Sue. Lysimachia does look very much like it.

It sure does look like Gooseneck Loosestrife (Lysimachia clethroides)
