Rose Campion (lychnis coronaria). Both Tarracotta and Kathy got it correct. Way to go girls!
Girl Gone Gardening didn't get the correct answer, but she gave it a try and in the process gave us some very interesting (and possibly useful) information about mullein. I do believe mullein was also used for candle wicks in ancient times. Go read her comment--I so love to learn new information about plants.
Lychnis Coronaria is actually an herb. It will bloom for a long time if you keep it deadheaded. Do let some seeds develop before fall though, so you can get babies for future years. This is a short-lived plant, but once you have it, it will probably keep reseeding.
My Weekend Goal was to Make a Bench Pillow - I am happy to report that I accomplished that goal!
