Does Anyone Know What This Is?

I was going through my photos today when I saw some images of this plant/shrub.

I remember seeing it in bloom a few streets over around late August, and my bees were all over it. I've been thinking about what to plant next year, and this might make the list -- if I could only figure out what it is.

Does anyone have any thoughts? Thanks in advance!

*** Update ***

I've been told this plant is called Fallopia japonica or Japanese Knotweed. The World Conservation Union lists it as one of the top 100 most invasive species. So I probably won't plant any, but my bees sure do love it. (sigh)
