I have grown this plant for years and all of a sudden the name escapes me. I am writing an article on plants that made it through our horrendous winter, as did this one, and I am on a deadline. Accckkkk
Sorry the photo is fuzzy. The flowers, which hang down, are sort of bell shaped and they come in various colors. Apparently this one is deer proof as they bit the flower off last evening and spit it out. It is in sad shape but maybe you can tell what it might have looked like.

Anyone recognize this?TIA

A pic would be helpful Smiling
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

OK folks, my brain has started working again and the plant is a young Sinningia. Thank you for putting up with my rambling.
