My guess would be either Stachytarpheta urticifolia, Porterweed or Verbena officinalis (maybe-but could be another species), Vervain. You'd have to check the foliage (if any seen) & compare.

I believe it to be a Lavender. Not sure of the variety tho.

Since you are from Texas, I'll say it's probably Texas Vervain, Verbena halei.

It's beautiful! I'd like some too! Doesn't look like a lavender to me - I've killed many a lavender (LOL) but I've never seen one with flower spikes that long and thin.

Thanks for your help everyone!
So far I'm thinking Vervain also.
