    Hi Sue, From your excellent photos, I could see the opposite leaves, its margins, veins and the clear shot of its flowers. Also from your great description of the plant’s habit. These tips helped quickly in narrowing down its genus. Thanks to your plant post, now other plant enthusiasts know about this beauty. Best wishes! Laura

    Maybe a species (Collinsonia) genus (?). Check out one of the species in the group; the C. verticillata (whorled horsebalm). Best wishes!
