This species from Romania is supposed to have deep green leaves and reddish purple flowers. The plants we grew from seed are now in their second year and blooming; the leaves check out, but the flowers are decidedly blue. Very nice, but I can't be certain of the identity.

This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
