Was wanting to add this to the database. Got looking at others and am thinking maybe it's a Larkspur "Blue Elf".
Was tagged delphinium but you never know with some garden centres.

Anybody familiar with it and can tell me which?

hmm ... Looks like Delphinium grandiflorum 'Blue Butterfly' to me:

Could be, how tall is your plant? 'Blue Elf' is a dwarf of @ 12" in height:
