SOLVED: Plant next to train tracks

Pensacola, FL(Zone 9a)

I've seen this plant growing for the last month or so in an urban area next to tracks. They stand up about 5 foot high with smooth stems. I found a plant with similar flowers back in the mid summer, I think it was a Eupatorium? Thanks for any help on this one.

Looks like Eupatorium but which one? Maybe altissimum?

Probably Eupatorium serotinum.

Thanks for the replies. For a novice like me, it's a little confusing on th ID, but it looks more like E.serotinum because of the leaves and more branching before the top? Here's a pic of the plant I found back in The month of June.

Your plant from June is E. perfoliatum.
