Can anyone identify this plant? I bought a house and this is growing great as ground cover. I would like to plant more if I can identify it.

If it helps, I live in Pennsylvania. The flowers just opened now (late May/early June). The plant is probably 3 feet tall.

It's Lychnis coronaria, a short lived, herbaceous perennial flowering plant. Likes moderately fertile, well drained soil and full sun, though it will tolerate some shade.
