Picture taken over the weekend at Vancouver Island.

Don't think it is a local variety.
Could be from the warmer south.
Appreciate all inputs.

Awesome, and thank you so much.
Wikipedia says that this perennial plant is native to southern Louisiana and Texas.

Do you have a iPhone or an Android? There is a great app called PICTURE THIS. You just take a picture of the flower, plant, tree leaves, etc and it tells you right away what is is.

I have it and for only $20 a year, It is one of the best apps for garden,landscaper in all of us.

I bought a pot of these on clearance at the end of last summer ( $3 I think? ) & planted them next to some established plants not really knowing what they were, their needs, et cetera. They're blooming now & I really love them! I'm on Long Island, NY so I guess they're happy here! Best wishes with yours!
