what is the name of this plant

It grows wild, the plant is about 4ft tall, notice the flower isn’t attached at the base but just behind the bell shaped opening.

Update – thanks to Sonya Chasey  for identifying it as “Himalayan balsam”

    It looks like balsam to me. It grows in damp places mostly.

    Very interesting and unusual flower. It must be very large if it’s 4′ tall.
