At mid to late summer blooms are hot pink and extremely bizarre. 3 1/2 ft last year I believe. Thanks for help

Could it be monarda?
This one has hot pink blooms: Bee Balm (Monarda didyma 'Raspberry Wine')

Are the stems square and does the foliage have a scent?

How are the flowers arranged? It reminds me of Veronica but I can't say a lot without flowers.

That's because it's growing here for me, Woof. I've had it forever.
I'll save you seeds this fall, how's that?
