I live in Sacramento CA. About 3 weeks ago I had these dark green shoots pop up. They did not have any flowere buds, but last week they bloomed the beautiful purple flowers. They are small and bell shaped in the way that they hang. There are several blooms on one stalk. They are light porple with dark purple streaks on them. The area where the flowers came up is right underneath our drainage pipe, and the area was severley flooded recently. Any idea what they are? Thank you!
