    I've had this growing in my garden since we moved here about 6 years now. I can't figure out what it is. Butterflies and hummingbirds seem to like it so I leave it. It kind of spreads but is easy to keep in check. Overall I like it, just don't know what it is. Doesnt bloom until late summer (now). Any ideas? Oh I'm in Wisconsin if that helps. Thanks!

    I'm thinking that's pretty close. I'll research more into those. Thanks!

    The flowers look similar to Chelone, but I think it's actually Physostegia. What hit me was that it's blooming now, and the leaves.

    I was thinking Digitalis at first glance, the blossoms are close but leaves are all wrong.
