Mine, which must be the same thing, is has white, fuzzy blooms. It reminds me of a tall ageratum. It seems to be about 3+feet tall. Is that in the ball park?

There are a number of different Eupatorium species (and some species in some related genera that used to be considered Eupatorium but are now something else). There are definitely others that have white fuzzy flowers and would be in this height range, so if you want to be sure what yours is, I'd post it in the ID forum.

These get a little fuzzier look as the blooms mature than when they are first opening. What I think of as ageratum might be a more full flower head. Hard to say. And height can vary.
