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

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