Growing like crazy in perennial bed, but what is it???

Sturgis, MI

Leaves are alternate and fuzzy. Edges are serrated. Stem is fuzzy, too. Stem turns purple near root joint. Crushed plant smells green. Seems to grow from root system. Didn't leave there long enough last year to know if it has flowers.... Any ideas??

Could it be Echinachea or Rudebecka?

Definitely not either of those...I think a variety of Campanula is possible.

Oh maybe like clustered bell flower aka Campanula may be it mine do resemble that now that I think about it.

Blue Bells, I have them and they are hard to get rid of. Actually pretty, but the little bee's love them.
