    This is a very unusual plant, it is far from the path and my pictures don't show enough both, the plant and the label

    But could you read the label?
    The plant looks like Michauxia campanuloides, - three weeks ago Daniel Mosquin had identified it in another thread here:
    Any guesses?
     
    Sulev, wcutler and Silver surfer like this.

    Thank you! I couldn't read the label. Michauxia campanuloides looks correct! I thought I could do it, but:(no. It's a pretty new and unusual plant, why it is planted so far from the path

    Yes, that's it. The one that was blooming last year (or the year before) was right beside the path.
