Hi, I am hoping someone can help me to identify the plant in this photo.
It's the tall grassy type plant at the back of this flower bed, it is quite tall, probably two to three feet, grass like leaves, long drooping flower stems that have lovely bell shaped purple flowers.
I took the photo on holiday last year, late august, in Devon, in a car park, very near to a beach, so it likes coastal weather. I've looked in a local garden center for anything similar, but without a name, I'm not getting very far. I hope the pic works!

Maybe Olsynium douglasii?

It is Dierama sp....Angels fishing rods!
Often planted in UK hanging over a pond.

Olysinium douglasii is a very short plant that flower here in early spring.
