I know I planted it but darned if I know what it is! Any clues?

    This appears to be a variety of colimbine (Aquilegia).

    Maybe a delphinium?

    More of the plant in one of the pics would be helpful.

    Well, that’s what we thought on first impression but the plant is awfully short and the bloom (three on on stem) is fairly small. You can see some of the leaves in one of the pictures too. Might give us another clue…does Columbine come this short and small? Plant is less than a foot tall, flowers less than an inch.

    Not Columbine…

    Check larkspur…. (Consolida sp.)

    Yes! I think you nailed it with the Delphinium. I looked at some other pics online of purple delphinium and some of them are a perfect match!
