I know what it said when I bought it 5 years ago, but I'm beginning to wonder. Can you help?

Firstly I'm guessing its an umbilifer, and by the way its taken over I'd also think it may be Aegopoduim podograria or the dreaded ground elder.

I hope I'm wrong but whatever it is it looks incredibly invasive.

Looked that up on vascular plant image and that's not it, fortunately. you are right that it's spread, but we let it, thinking it was what we wanted. I've never seen a flower due to the deer.
btw, it's about 2 1/2 ft to 3 ft high if that helps.

I'm thinking its one of the composites, since it never bloomed its hard to tell. Almost looks like one of the perennial rudbeckias similar to R. nitida or lacinata.

that's encouraging, it was sold as a rudbeckia. But I can't find the right one.

tiG I'm thinking rudbeckia laciniata. Here are some links to pictures. See what you think.

That's it poppysue! It was the second picture that told for sure. I was pretty sure after checking those pictures last night, but not 100%. Thanks to all for taking the time:)
