    oh I've had those... I would say that's Digitalis Dalmatian Purple...  part of the Dalmatian series...

    This is D. Dalmation purple, so you could be right.
    He calls her the chocolate girl
    Cause he thinks she melts when he touches her
    She knows she's the chocolate girl
    Cause she's broken up and swallowed
    And wrapped in bits of silver

    I would say the OP is just Digitalis purpurea, there is a fair amount of variation

    This is Dalmatian Purple... it's characterized by larger and more outward facing flowers,  such as in the first post... than those on purpurea...  I think the foliage is a bit different too..

    I think it looks more like "Candy mountain" the flower go all the way round and pile up on each other.
