Hi Sheila909, Welcome! to All Things Plants!
My eyes aren't the greatest anymore and I'm not certain but that lovely plant looks like Boneset to me, possibly
Common Boneset (Eupatorium perfoliatum)

More images for comparison:

Hopefully others will be along before long with some possible suggestions!

Welcome! to ATP It really IS awfully pretty, Sheila. Looks like hardly any of the flowers were open when you took the pictures. Any chance you can get back to it and take more pictures - a close-up of the flowers would really help a lot.

If you're using your cell phone to get the pics, just hold the phone as close as 8in. or so, and tap on a flower on your screen to make it focus on the flower. Otherwise it will focus on the leaves in the background.

Is it growing in full, blazing sun or in a more shady area? Are there many others around it?

After looking more closely at the leaves I don't think it's Boneset.

It's not Common Boneset(Eupatorium perfoliatum), but there is more than one species of Boneset. I could be Late Boneset (Eupatorium serotinum).
