Here's another shot of the leaves again (please excuse the sideways picture, I'm posting from my iPad and it apparently doesn't like vertical pictures):

I could easily be wrong, but it reminds me of "bouncing bet". Here is a link that compares the two (phlox and this European native): Wildflower: Bouncing Bet (Soponaria officinalis), Youghiogheny River Trail

I'm hoping you can identify it on your end and let us know.

I'm inclined to agree with Dapjwy. Bouncing-bet:

I ashamed to admit it, but in my younger days, I mistook dame's rocket for phlox.
