...but which one?

I was going to ask if it's a hummer plant, but while I was getting ready to take the pic, a little female answered that question.

I would've though Lobelia siphilitica - mine is blooming now.

Nice picture.

RE: Lobelia, I think...

It's certainly a beautiful form with the dark stems! Worth saving seed, too.
I haven't seen as handsome a Lobelia as that one.

This is a great photo. I just had to come back and look at it again. You should submit it to Botany Photo of the Day, a website hosted by the University of British Columbia Botanical Garden.

Here is a link that might be useful: Botany Photo of the Day for Sept. 22.

RE: Lobelia, I think...

I asked an expert at the University of Tennessee ( they have a fantastic herbarium for searching species)
It's Lobelia puberula.

I was drooling over your photo.... ctnchpr !
