    I snapped a photo of a very unusual (to me) flower in someone's garden this summer. I can't for the life of me remember whose garden it was, so I can't go ask them and I've been going crazy trying to identify this flower via 'net or books (I suspect it may not be native to North America). Can anyone help? I would love to get some of these for my garden next year. Thank you!!

    Anyone is welcome to email me here with an answer:

    That's what I've been reading!
    I'm very happy now and looking forward to finding and planting some next spring!

    I also found that particular variety (of all of them, it's my favorite so far) is called "Miss Jekyll Blue".

    Thanks again!!
    You folks are quick!
