    Hello Everyone!

    This plant in my garden was killed accidently several years ago, and ever since, I've been trying to find out what it is so that I can try get another one. In this photo, the leaves are somewhat bitten. As you can see the leaves near the flowers are green-blue-purple!

    I would be so happy if someone could tell me what it is. Thank you!!
