This is growing at a neighbor's house in northern Virginia (Zone 7a). The tallest plants are over 3 feet tall, but it hasn't flowered yet. I hope someone recognizes it!

Or the similar looking dog fennel:
Dog Fennel (Eupatorium capillifolium)

Thumbs up Good eye @purpleinopp Tiffany, I'm thinking it might very well be Dog Fennel!

Eupatorium capillifolium looks like a good match! Thanks!
