6-7 foot stands in wet meadow, midcoast Maine; paired deeply cut leaves periodically along grooved stem. Stem green, ribs reddish. Not in my plant books. Toxic?

The plant has the look of valerian to me. Might check google images.

Careful! It may be poison hemlock, it's hard to see the foliage well in the photo.

If there are reddish purple spots on the lower stems, that is definitely it. It also has more fern-like foliage than valerian.

Right on, Linda. Not the native I'd hoped.

There's no mistaking the smell of Valerian I love it but everyone I know thinks it stinks
