name that flower !
 
This is an annual that I was given last year. It's not in any of my seed
catalogs that I can tell. The stuff in the background is Astilbe, that
I
know. But what is this thing with mint-like leaves and viola-like blue
and
purple flowers??
Help!
thanks,
Lee

Wow, Baine! You must really know your plants!

Out of curiosity, I googled for pictures of Torenia -- interestingly, most
of them seem to be in Japan -- here's one that you might find interesting:

That's Clown Mix Torenia. They thrive in shady conditions and are upright
and bushy. There is also another Torenia that trails out of baskets that
does well in shady spots. Those flowers are a beautiful blue color and
similar in it's bell shape flower.
