    I believe it a lobelia, but I don't know which one....yet!

    The leaves aren't right for a Great blue Lobelia, I agree with Jay, it looks like a type of wild Orchid.there are so many varieties. You can call a master gardener, that's what I do when I am stumped. Most areas have programs where Master Gardeners are available foe free advice.

    Rhonda, I agree with you. The leaves appear to be bamboo and the flowers do not appear to be on the same stem as the leaves.

    I agree with Donna Dixson and Rhonda Brady, Lobelia Siphilicata. I have had this plant and many other colors also.

    Looks like Virginia Blue Bells. A guess

    The blooms are too deeply lobed to be a Virginia Bluebell, which is more cupped or 'bell shaped'. The leaf is also too narrow to be the Mertensia and I seem to recall that they are fuzzy like leaves (I could be wrong about that )
