Duh Duh laugh

It's tall, and has a long strip of flowers at the top. Little flowers.... One color on the plant...I don't have a pic, as it's 'done for' for the winter...
Only need to know because I have some seeds for it, and don't want to classify it was "mystery seeds" laugh laugh

Any ideas?

Delphiniums?
Foxglove?
Beebalm?

What color was the flower itself?
And what was the shape of the flower petals like?
What time of year did it bloom???
And how tall do you consider tall??? 2ft, 3ft, 5ft?

The flower color was a purple-ish pink, I think...
Not sure about the flower petals itself.. laugh ... there were lots of them, really small.. and kinda fuzzy I think...
It was about 3 feet tall...
The seeds themselves were very small... and fuzzy- like at the bottom. Almost like a fishing lure, or a tad pole laugh Duh

Weezie-- I did an image search for the three you listed... it's definatly not the Foxglove of the Bee Balm... could be the Delphinium.

I could take a picture of the plant... all brown and flowerless and stuff.. don't know how much help that would be though... laugh laugh laugh

Okay, in the meantime...
Is there one good sturdy stalk?
Or several?

Where the leaves fat and at the bottom,
or were they skinny and go all the way up to the top???

There was one stalk.... not very thick though...
I think the leaves were mostly at the bottom.
It's vert straight though... not like bending over or anything...

The seeds themselves are very fluffy-like.. they look kinda like itty-bitty fishing lures... fuzzy little hairs trailing off the bottom... maybe that helps...
