Woodland wildflower. Ours were grown from seed labeled 'Hoskins Variegated', but they clearly aren't. I misplaced them for a year or two, and it took me a while to realize what these mint-family flowers were doing in our bogside border. They get more sun there than they supposedly like, so maybe I'll move them to a shadier place this year.

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