|Looks like a species of Aster. I would be hesitant to guess since there are at least 25 species recorded in Tennessee.|

|Reminds me of Heath Aster (Symphyotrichum ericoides) It shows it to grow to three feet but I've seen it here at about four feet tall and wide.|

| heath aster|
It has taken over half an acre if my front pasture and is taller than the big goat , 4 foot maybe more.
I had intended to cut it down when It had just started to bloom and noticed all the insects (hundreds) so I let it be .
It can be kept short for the garden , I have seen it flowering in lawn that have been mowed.
Keep believing ,hoping,and loving
all else is just existing.
