Looks like an annual lobelia.

Thank You! Do you believe that it requires full sun? I found it in the shade.

Mine did better in part shade than in full sun. Since you are further south than I, it would be better off in the shade.

Thank You! I tip my hat to you. I can only imagine a neighbor had one and it somehow seeded into the yard. I will enjoy it while it lasts. Lovey dubby

I agree, it looks like a variety of Lobelia (Lobelia erinus)

In my zone, Lobelia reseeds very well.

I will keep an eye out for seeds in that case. Maybe I'll get lucky and find it in the yard again next year. Lovey dubby
