Family campanulaceae
Life cycle perennial (Z5-8)
Flowers pink to white flowers, spotted maroon, all summer

Given the right conditions (rich, moist soil), this is a vigorous spreader, and may need to be contained. Average Lehigh Valley summer garden conditions manage to keep it in check, though. Attractive glossy foliage, lots of flowers.

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
