off-topic, Monarda mystery

Earlier this spring I dug up some Monarda from some woods that were going 
under the bulldozer here in Cincinnati.  It has now bloomed and for the 
life of me I can't identify it.  Is there another genus similar to Monarda?

My plant has 3 tiers of small white flowers.  Each tier is only about 3cm 
across.  It is sortof like M. punctata but but without those triangular 
bracts that stick out.  I've searched the web and can't find a matching 
photo.  Anyone got any pointers?

about the plants normally discussed here)    :-)
