Lost the marker and I can't recall what this might be. I kept really bad notes this year too!

Could it be Bee Balm or Catnip?

I don't think so. It does not have a fragrance to the leaves. I was pretty sure I did not plant either of those.

I didn't plant very much, so you'd think that I'd know what it is!! I planted it up in containers until I figure out what it is, so I know where it goes.

It's possible it is an annual, as I planted some in the jugs too.

okay I think I solved the mystery. I went back to look at some seed packets. It appears to be annual blue portweed. Darn. Probably didnt' get it planted in the ground in time to bloom.!
