Trad. Pink Chablis is lovely!
I snapped this a few minutes ago. We had heavy rain last night so everything looks weatherbeaten. It is trad. Zwanenburg Blue with the last of this year's Stellar Lights flowers. I like the way these plants look together, even though this photo isn't the best example. :( I find them both hard to photograph even under good circumstances.

Donald -
That must one of the wild spiderworts since it is not any of the cultivated varieties I have.
They are much less invasive and do just fine in a mixed garden (avoid Concord Grape though).
If you still want some, you can cut down a plastic milk carton to about a 3" tall ring and plant it around a bunch of it. Keeps it from spreading underground.
