A beautiful biennial with purple leaves and pink flowers. It suffered a bit from being transplanted into the border
so the foliage was a bit ratty but it flowered well and produced seed. It died as an inevitable consequence
and now I am snooping around the border hoping for some tiny dark leaved seedlings.

Fortunately it manages to seed itself around mildly. Self seeded plants are much more impressive than the original plant.
