Could you show a closer picture of the leaves? If it is Phlox, the leaves should be opposite one another on the stem. This appears to be alternate leaf arrangement.

I think it is dame's rocket, Hesperis matronalis, which is not native to the US.

Here is a link that might be useful: dame's rocket

It's definitely dames rocket. It can proliferate abundantly given the right woodland setting, which can be beautiful during it's peak bloom, but which can crowd out other less rambunctious woodland plants, so be sure to control it if it's in an area with valuable woodland plantings.

fredilino - your picture shows Impatiens. This is not the same plant mentioned in the above thread, nor is it related.
