Default What is this plant?

Same question, different forb

This has mustard characteristics, but phlox color. I can't figure it out.

Looks like a wall flower.

Default Plant found on road shoulder

This one seems to be in the process of developing a flowering head, but there are what look like flower ovaries and sepals in the lower leaf axils. There is a clump of these stems.

Reminds me of Purple loosestrife, but those leaves seem a little more round than on the ones I have (and am trying to get rid of). My plants are more upright, thin, and pointy in general.

Check out the Triosteum species that would be in your area.

Here's one example:
Triosteum**** aurantiacum: UW-Stevens Point Freckmann Herbarium: Plant Details Page

Triosteum looks like the genus all right. I'll have to watch for flowering to determine the species. Thanks, Cirsium.

It may be endangered in Pennsylvania, so I'm glad I have taken time to check it out.

I think the flowering has already finished. Those look like the fruits in the leaf axils in photos 2 and 3. They will turn yellow/orange/red when mature.
