Pink Species

I took this photo in 2009, and just discovered it again. I never did identify it the first time around. It was in a shaded ditch along a forest road. Any idea of species?

It looks like Stokes Aster (Stokesia laevis). I have a couple named varieties that look very similar.

Here is a link that might be useful: Stokesia laevis - Mobot Website
