I found this flower around Manistee National Forest, Michigan. Specifically around the water ways. In swampy soil. I love it! I think if may be outside of my zone, bummer, but would love help identifying it!

Loosestrife seems to match. And according to Google it is an invasive species. Not gonna use that then! Thanks for the help both of you!
