Name this plant. Sorry, no picture. It dies back every year like a hosta. It is about 3 by 3 feet with large heart-shaped leaves which have rough bristles on them; but the bristles are fine. The leaves are dark green on the top and a shade of lighter green underneath. It flowers about may/June until July/August and is in zone 5. The flowers are in clusters and are lavender/pale purple with slight pink banding. These flowers are some what tube shaped and the center part of the flower slightly protrudes and is a cream color. Bees like this plant.
