Thanks Jen, for all your help. Purpurea it is. I'll add it to the database. I will get seeds for those who want them if you let me know this plant is not considered invasive or noxious in your area. It's really frustrating to have so many beautiful plants on the 'noxious' list here and to know that 1 zone away they aren't a problem at all! I guess the tradeoff is year round growing so I shouldn't complain too much!!
