I love this plant. My mother brought it home to me from our farm in western NY state over 20 years ago. I have grown it ever since. It self-seeds so I have passed its offspring on to various friends. The leaves are deep green and very glossy. Flowers appear late (August-September) in New England. Great plant.

I like this opinion

Very neat looking. I love the purple blue color. I have plant that is very similar to this one. It's a type of Campanella.
