Found this growing & blooming today in central Mississippi, in wet soils, full sun, 3 ft tall. Pink flowers, leaves are opposite, and serrate, square stems. I will post another picture with a better close up.

Any ideas?

Thanks! I knew I had seen it before, the flower bract was very distinct, but I couldn't quite place it.
