Nice close up.! If it's the plant I'm thinking of, I like the way the buds open pink and then turn blue, once they have been pollinated by a bee.

it looks very similar to Mertensia in the shape and colour of the flower but on a larger scale....I just love blue flowers...

It isn't a thug like the other one I have that was everywhere in the garden when we came here. I dug out 12 barrowloads from my wide border last summer to plant up with Heleniums and other bright tall plants! I still have to be on the lookout for little plants - a bit like bindweed, if you miss a bit of root, up it comes!
