This plant is a stalk about 3 feet tall, and the blooms go up it. Blooms are about an inch. It has been blooming for several months now. It came from a wild flower mix, but is one that I can't identify. It is perennial, or at least biennial.

It's in the mix, so if it looks like it, it is. It is making seed pods now - thin and long. Is that how dame's rockets are?

It is biennial, reseeds itself or you can collect the seeds when the long pods are dry and brown.
