Plant ID

Plant ID

I came home today to a porch full of plants that my mother-in-law somehow rounded up, I'm not sure from where. (She caught on that I like gardening, and now randomly scavenges plants for me from either the college or her gardening friends. It's cool, but it's always a surprise what she'll find! Especially since she's not really a gardener...) Anyway, I now have a decent sized clump of some kind of small iris, some canna lily bulbs, a clump of flox (no idea if it was the tall variety that's common around here or something that would stay small) and a huge wilting something with a purple flower on it. She didn't know what the big one was, only that it was a perennial. I feel like I should know what this is, because I've seen several photos of this (or maybe just similar) flower on here, but never caught the name! IMG_3950 It was pretty wilted from sitting on the porch for hours; I hope it makes it. I stuck the roots in a bucket of water... I already planted the iris and flox (it's been raining here for two-three days so that was a fun dig-through the mud clumps job.) It was already late, dinner was on the stove, and we had friends from out of town drop in unexpectedly so I hope leaving them in water overnight will be ok. IMG_3949
