The leaf is different too. Could it be Anemone virginiana?:

Jennifer, why would I give you a weed? I gave you a fall blooming Japanese Anemone:)

Vigorous, fibrous-rooted, mounding, Japanese hybrid anemone that grows to 3-4’ tall with a late summer to early fall bloom (late August to October). Silvery pink flowers (2-3”) with darker rose shadings and yellow center stamens on long, wiry, branching stems over trifoliate foliage with dark green, basal leaves. Formerly Anemone hupensis var. japonica 'September Charm'. Spreads. Planted 2 plants in Fall of 2011."
