Similar to common larkspur (ConsoAjaci:C. ajacis). The spurs on this species are slightly longer (up to an inch), on deep purple flowers. For those wielding a magnifying glass, another difference would be the absence of hairs on the style and seed pods.
We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
