I bought it without a tag, and it's really bugging me that I don't know what it is or how to properly care for it.

It's currently potted in a 1.5 gallon container, and living in my screened-in porch. Approximately a foot tall with dark green foliage.
Leaves are fuzzy, with somewhat purple-tinged underside. Leaf edges are toothed gently.

Flowers grow on spikes. The blossoms are tubular and open into a bonnet shape. Petals are lavender in color and the interior is flecked with a darker purple shade.
