Blue False Indigo
It's in a fairly ideal position in the garden. It gets full sun, I water it whenever it droops, it doesn't have any real pest issues. It's the host plant to a few moths and butterflies but nothing that completely defoliates the plant. An odd thing I've noticed is at the tips of each stem there is a shrived end, as if each stem could have grown taller but the plant said No Stop Here. I've seen it in past years and assumed those were flowers that failed to form. Now that's flowering well I still see them at the ends of some stems but clearly most of the buds formed.
