Not certain this is the exact variety I have, but looks like it.
This plant is wonderful — cut it back, and it'll flower again.

'Blue Queen' grows fast from seed, and is very attractive. My infromation says it can be planted in partial sun as well. Blooms May-June in my garden, though it is in a shadier spot.
