I think it's tall garden phlox paniculata....can't say 100% for sure, but that's what I think it is.

Yep, tall garden phlox. OR, if you didnt plant it, and found them wild.... wild phlox :D My daughter used to pick them for me all the time from the edge of our woods. They smell just as good as the ones in the garden :D

Hesperis matronalis (Dames Rocket).

Phlox has 5 petals.

Note that these plants will spread all over your area, and can become a chore to control.

They are at the base of a walnut tree in the yard and they do seem to kind of spread but anything that strays too far from the walnut gets mowed over everytime I mow. I think they are supposed to be there, in the past I have discovered old pieces of bricks where it looks like someone had a flower bed surrounding the tree. Thanks

Okay, I don't spend any time in chat rooms so, somebody fill me in; what does the acronym IMO stand for?

I believe IMO means "in my opinion."

I don't spend any time in chat rooms, either.
