It kind of starts out looking like a Lambs Ear but flowers into a great looking 3' plant with purple flowers that blooms from april to sept. It grows in shade, sun anyplace. The flowere is around 2"...

I love this flower and when I see it growing (as a weed) I move it to place it in a nice locations for the summer.

Thanks...

and for extra credit how about the name of this weed?
