Getting to know the garden at my new housecomments (5) August 22nd, 2009 in gallery
We moved into our house last November. The former owners were hit-or-miss gardners but before doing any garden renovations of my own I wanted to see what would come up in established beds
This plant is about 12" tall not counting the flower stalks. The stems and leaves are coarse and hairy. It started off small but after a summer of plentiful rain and sunshine, it has become a little invasive and needs to be divided.
The flowers are very pretty and make a nice contrast to the gray fuzzy buds. I included a photo of the leaves which should give you a better idea as to what kind of plant this is.
I hope one of you will be able to help me identify this plant. Thanks in advance,

Maybe you knew once, and now you just can't remember.
