Dave that's the South African foxglove http://plantsdatabase.com/go/897/ It's an annual. I grew them last year for the first time. There's also a white variety. I liked them but the flowers seemed to fall off too quickly. Everytime a few buds would open ... the older ones fell off. It never seemed to have more than 3 or 4 buds open at one time. It's still a nice looking plant - eh?
