What is this plant?

Asked July 27, 2020, 7:16 AM EDT

This is growing in my flower bed this summer. Is this a weed or something I should keep? The plants are about 10 inches tall. I have looked everywhere on the web trying to identify. Thanks for your help.

We think this looks like a type of blue Lobelia, perhaps our native Lobelia syphilitica.
A good native flower to have.
