What is this plant?

Asked June 2, 2016, 9:55 AM EDT

Plaeas help me identify this plant. I ordered and potted this plant about three years ago but can't remember what or why. But it has turned out to be a beautiful plant. After a 16 day rain it was leaned over, so I tied it up to a stick. It is simply gorgeous I have no idea what it is
