    Might it be a lobelia of some type?

    Bumping this up because I'm not certain that my answer is right.

    It does look a bit like Lobelia @Uff , but it's got opposite leaves from the look of it. Lobelias are alternate as far as I know.
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    It's driving me mad because l'm sure l know it. I'm thinking Rudbeckia or Campanula but l don't think that's right.

    I'm the same AnniD and every time I look at it I almost say the name of it

    Phlox, maybe? Bit of a long shot though.
    The reddish coloration reminds me of veronicastrum but I'm not sure about the leaf shape.
