Something Blue

I think it looks more purple than blue. Flower of the blue potato bush (Solanum rantonnetii) AKA Paraguay nightshade. The plant froze all the way down this winter. I thought I had lost it but once things warmed up from deep under the ground it sent up new shoots. The plant is probably 6 feet tall now and has just started to bloom.
