Hard to tell from your photo. Maybe verbena hastata - or Blue Vervain. http://davesgarden.com/edittl/showimage.php?iid=68

Just a wild guess here, since I've not actually grown this plant myself, but it looks like Polygonatum orientalis SOUNDS, commonly called Kiss Me Over the Gardwen Gate, or KMOGG for short. Is it really tall, and could I get some seeds?

Cicero, NY(Zone 5a)

Yes ,its really tall,I have so many things I don't remember planting. If I get some seeds,sure ,I'll share them,Don't want tooo many real tall plants in there.

Cool, Poppysue, and it works great with the cleome in the foreground! Now I want those, too! I've really got to stop reading this forum---I want everything I see.

I don't think thats it.This has jagged leaves and the bloom in your link is much darker,fuller and prettier

Hmmmm.... maybe it's a polygonatum relative? I see the leaves aren't quite the same.
