In zone 5, this plant blooms later in the season (late summer) and adds a beautiful blue color to the garden. It seems to grow fairly slowly, and does not spread aggressively. Does not seem to be picky about soil conditions or need frequent watering. The shape of the flower really is a unique look among other flowers blooming at the same time.

I found some of these in a reclaimed pasture close to my home. They're lovely. Smiling

Before I knew what they were I was planning a trip back into the heavy brush to see them when they opened up.

With some help from friends here at ATP in the plant ID forum I found out that I'd already seen them in full bloom!
