I’ve tried Google, I’ve tried posting, I’ve tried almost everything that occurred to me …and then I thought “Why didn’t I think of Walter Reeves?!” Could you help …this very tall flower has come up several years in a row down by my pond in Dunwoody and no one seems to know what it is. It’s intensely purple on a 5 1/2 ft stalk and blooms mid to late August. Do you know it? Thank you so much, Susan Cicero, Spalding Garden Club
