We planted this annual (right side of pot, purple flower) for the first time, in a few pots last spring and they looked beautiful! Now we can't find the plant I.D. tags. We can't wait to plant more this spring, but we don't know what it is. Purple flower, possibly a Lobelia???

Streptocarpella. I keep them as house plants also.
