Chinese Hat Plant, FOTD July 19, 2019

Click on flowers to enlarge.

Bob from the Love Will Bring Us Together blog identified this plant for me.  Here is his information:

Holmskioldia Sanguinea Retz commonly called the Chinese hat plant, cup-and-saucer-plant or Mandarin’s hat!. It’s a member of the Mint family ( Lamiaceae ) and is the only species in the genus Holmskioldia!

See Bob’s blog HERE and if you have a plant you can’t identify, he has a section of his blog to report it in and he’s a super plant sleuth.  I’ve never found one he couldn’t identify.
