Can anyone ID this plant?

I drove past this plant in Peoria Heights, Illinois this last Sunday, July 19th. It is in full sun, near a curb, so it's probably pretty drought tolerant. You can hopefully tell the scale from the porch in the background, and the daylily beside it. This plant is growing in zone 5.


It looks like an agastache, sage, salvia? Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!

I think your plant is Purple loosestrife..it's suppose to be very invasive, but I have it and I love it, and as a bonus it blooms forever.

Thanks Rene. I have heard of purple loosestrife being invasive, but seems contained enough. I will probably experiment with it and watch it closely. I just love this color!
