What is this??

Asked August 9, 2020, 12:52 PM EDT

I have this in my flower beds, yes I put it there, but I cannot for the life of me recall or figure out what it is. It as spread quite a bit, it's roots do not seem to be very deep as I can pull much of the extra without much effort. The flowers open in the day and look white but are closed by early evening and look pink at that time.

Thank you for writing.
The picture is a bit blurry and not close in but I believe that is willowherb. https://www.minnesotawildflowers.info/flower/purple-leaf-willowherb
