I didn't know but now I do - it's a Himalayan Balsam

Observation - I didn't know but now I do - it's a Himalayan Balsam. Description: A beautiful orchid-like plant that I have seen on riverbanks - known for seeds to travel downstream to re-seed and spread quickly. Grows very tall (I am 5'5) and it has well surpassed me.
