Hello I have searched and asked what is this flower it is so similar to flax but is the deepest of purple you can imagine.Stem is about 13 inches tall .I took seeds from it and they took and are starting to grow nicely in green house .Also stem and leaves are slender and whispy I am sending a picture of this flower from last year .Maybe a wild flower ? Can anyone help me out? Thank-you.Sharon

My guess from the picture is that it is a Larkspur...Delphinium.......

I agree Larkspur
