SOLVED: Please Help ID this plant

Plymouth, PA(Zone 5b)

Hi I received this plant in a Secret Trade. The sender didnt know what it is called. It has little Pink Flowers on it and the Bees Love it (her words). It has some seed pods on it, that I have drying out now. But we would both love to know a name of it.

Tamlamb, I'm not 100% certain, but it sure looks like my Chelone (Turtlehead), down to your description of the seed pods drying on it. Here's a photo of C. obliqua for comparison:

There's also one in our Plants Database but it's hard to make out the leaves for a good comparison.

HI Go_Vols

That looks exactly like it. Thank you so much. I will let my secret trader know too.
