Looks like beebalm (Monarda fistulosa) to me. The Monarda bradburiana is also 'beebalm', but it usually has spots on the petals.

Thank you both , I found some pictures of it after searching Monarda fistulosa , so I guess that's it. Appreciate your help!

@T Sousley, I don't know the silver berry, but it also looks like the feral (lol, offspring of domestic ones the homesteaders planted I guess) pears that grow out here in the Ozarks. They make tiny little pears, but the fruits get bigger than your picture. About the size of golf balls and not good to eat because they're too hard and grainy and never even cook down to a good consistency.

The purple flower in Missouri looks like a Centaurea to me.  Does it have a thistle looking bud?  There are several different plants in this family.
