I have 2 of these plants growing in my raised bed. I am sure that I winter sowed them but have lost track of the name of it. They have both flowered now so may be a lot easier to ID. I want to find out if I have to over winter it inside. Please any help is appreciated.

Thanks Sue for the ID. I see it is hardy for my zone so I will leave them in the raised bed and will plant them out in a flower bed next spring. Is this a desirable plant to have?

I don't grow it but I kind of like the look of it....Missouri Botanical Garden seems to think it worth growing:
