It never occurred to me that it could be an annual.

The seed packet said A. phillippiana.  It grew amazingly long and  
skinny, and then had a pale pink flower with two lower petals with  
three zones (white, yellow, pink), all streaked magenta.  (so easy to  
augment one's memory with a digital photo.)
