@tofitropic and @greene Thanks for identifying this flower for me. I will mark where it is and if it comes up next year, I will transplant it to another area.

If i may suggest, collect the seed, since it is an annual. It will be better rather than waiting for a chance of self-sow seedling to appear next spring.

I had this plant grow in a bed in which I cast wild flower seeds. Several came up and bloomed late (September in DE). I had three plants with blue petals and one plant with pint petals. They do look like some type of aster. pretty. no fragrance. late bloomers. going to try to harvest seeds when appropriate. Mine were planted where they had sun all morning and shade all afternoon.

Welcome! to Garden.org. Dedon. Thanks for the info. I am not real sure what it is but it is pretty. It is growing in a raised bed that has full sun. I am going to try to collect seeds from it also. I may also spread a few seeds right below it and see if they come up next year. I hope to see you around the other forums on this great gardening site.
