What plant is this?

I am pretty sure it is an aster but I stand to be corrected. It has produced a lot of top growth this year but has not flowered. I did plant an aster in this area several years ago, which is what makes me think that this is it gone wild. It cuyrrently stands at around 1m high.

Pic is too blurry to tell. A close-up might help. Did it have any flowers?

No, it had no flowers this year. I am not certain about the flower, but think that it was a mid pink with deeper pink centre.
