Need help with identity of this plant

This is a low growing, fuzzy leaf plant that grows in shade. Has a purplish tint to the dark green leaves and in a few weeks will start having flowers. The flower is purple and kind of like a petunia. The throat of the flower comes out from the plant and the open part--the petals drop down.
Here is the flower

Does anyone have a name for it?


  1. Marilyn,
    Just at first glance it looks like Monarda to me.--Randy

  2. Looks like some form of Ajuga to me.

  3. Well, that takes Monarda out of the possibilities. I don't have a clue what it might be...--Randy

  4. Could this plant be what they call "Widows Tears"?
    It looks like a plant that I have.
