Awfully pretty, I want to say tibouchina or sesame... But I'm having trouble exactly matching your plant on google images.

It kind of reminds me of some kind of wild lupine. Similar to Silky Lupine?

Thanks Stone !
The sprouting leaf clustering of sesame looks indeed quite similar, but doesn't have the near-parallel leaf-venation.

It does indeed have a Lupine look, but the leaves are not palmate ...
