Plant ID...what colour

Hi guys, any idea what this is?  Not sure whether to plant in my pink border or white/blue/yellow one.  Thought I’d wait for it to flower but that seems away off

    If you're really impatient, I suppose you could wait a bit longer and pick a bud apart to see the colour

    Leaves look like delphinium, flowers are usually blue or purplish, but there are sometimes white and pinkish ones.

    Thanks for the suggestions but definitely not delphiniums as I have a pot of those growing right by these.  These are only small 6 inches or so with different what looks like flower buds but are really the new leaves coming.  I did buy them as plug plants so they must be fairly common

    It looks very similar to some aconites I have they are blue.

    Sorry just reread your post! Agonies are 5ft not 6ins.

    They may just be 6 inches now..but could still grow much taller.
    They remind me of Aconitum sp as well.
    Flowers can be white or blue.

    Leaves vary conciderably.

    Thinking about it I wonder if it is an aconitum. I might have taken cuttings from a friends last year.  I’m not very good at labelling and always end up with loads of pots of stuff I don’t recognise. It looks in too good a condition to be a cutting I took hahaha.  Good to know if is an aconitum though as they are very poisonous.  At least I now know where to plant it.  Thanks everyone
