Prolific perennial reseeder, bloomer of pink blooms up a stalk, heart-shaped slightly hairy green leaves...almost a nuisance it is so prolific. Single plant growing from a single area...to large size to 3-4'.

It's a Salvia--S. coccinea. Possibly the 'Coral Nymph' cultivar http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/go/31635/
