This could be one of a few things, however it's either a Delphinium (grandiflorum or Belladonna group) or Consolida species. I think it looks quite close to a wild form of Consolida ajacis (Larkspur) but I won't swear to it that it is because there are a lot of species out there and both Consolida and Delphinium are very closely related and the wild forms do look very, very similar.
Bummer!! IF it's the same ones I have, they don't like heat much at all. Once the temps start getting in the high 80's, they poop out. How hot have you been up there, Crimson? Maybe try them a little earlier in the year next year? Or not again if it's that much trouble?
