Identified as Silene laciniata (Cardinal Catchfly, Mexican Catchfly, etc.)
The title of this post is incorrect, btw. It actually has 5 petals, but each one is deeply divided into 4 to 6 lobes.

looks like - silene laciniata 'jack flash' to me

Mexican Catchfly (Silene laciniata 'Jack Flash')

or perhaps more like just plain - Silene laciniata

Cardinal Catchfly (Silene laciniata)
