I have a pond behind my home and 3 of these plants appeared this year among the wild aster and milk weed. It has taken me a while to identify it as white meadowsweet. It has 5 fused petals and a very purple pink center. The long leaves look like this variety as well. The fruit pods are numerous and brown. Hopefully I will have more next year.
