I can't remember what I planted. I didn't expect this but I really like it. Does anyone know what it is. I hope it's a perennial but it it's not, I want to know what kind of seeds to get next year. I know someone out there will know what it is!

I have this "annual" it is now 4 years old and has become a mound almost a yard across. It blooms for about 2 months and then is a lovely green the rest of the year. So far it has survived flooding, heavy frosts and light snow without being covered because who covers annuals! I started it from seed but have yet to see it self seed new plants.

Thanks for the ID and information. I don't remember planting it but that doesn't really mean anything anymore. I hope mine reseeds itself if not, now I know what to look for.
