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?

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.
