It came with the house when we bought it. Planted in a part shade backyard garden.

@Calif_Sue- that's an issue I've been having. I mostly post from my iPad and it doesn't allow me to post to a specific forum directly. Earlier today I had asked a question that I knew belonged in the rose forum, but again could only post in the general question section. Had anyone else mentioned this issue?

My first thought was that it looks like a Salvia but the lobes at the bases of some of the leaves means it's not one I am familiar with. Looking at pics of salvias, the nearest I found was Salvia verticillata which does seem to have lobes at the base of some leaves. Hopefully someone will recognize the plant for you.

Thank you @sooby- I'll look this up. I posted this after spending a bunch of time on the Internet researching and the closest I came to my flower was Agastache Foeniculum, but the leaves didn't quite match. Would love to know what you think.

Both are in the same family (Mint - Lamiaceae), most of which have square stems (can you verify for your plant)? I did have an Agastache last year but it didn't make it through the winter unfortunately. A distinguishing feature of your plant is the pointy lobes at the leaf bases on some leaves. A quick look on Google at Agastache leaves didn't turn up any like that but maybe someone more familiar with it can comment. The flowers on yours don't look fully open yet.
