    Your first instinct was right as rain. Mistflower it is and the url you provided describes the color of the flower perfectly. Thank you.

    Maybe a species in the blue mistflower/hardy ageratum (Conoclinium). I’m guessing this could the species C. coelestinum syn. Eupatorium coelestinum (?). Check out the included for information & images, and see if you have a match. Best wishes! http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/showimage/385721/
