What is this weed?

Asked July 7, 2020, 4:05 PM EDT

It is growing on the edge of a wooded area in Ham Lake. It grows 3 to 4 ft. tall, and the stem is hollow and watery and can get about an inch thick. Apparently it grows little orange slipper-like flowers that aren't out yet. Is it Jewelweed? Thank you!
