New Flower - Sit Spot #890 - July 5, 2021

According to two apps on my iPhone, 
this is a flower species that I have never seen before. 
Fleur-Ange found it yesterday in a nearby ditch. 
I want to go tomorrow with my good camera 
and a couple of wild flower field guides 
to double check the ID. 
Right now we are calling it 
Marsh Hedge-nettle or 
épiaire des marais 
(Stachys palustris).
