Saw these outside of OSU Hospital yesterday and thought they looked awesome. Love to track some down to plant at the house but don't know what they're called.

Here ya go. From my wife, she's a horticulturist. She manages an estate and ran her own landscape business.

"It's an annual -- common name - Persian Shield, Latin name - Strobilanthes dyerianus. It likes lots of shade."
