Welcome to GOY Dirtyhands and good luck with your new garden. Brilliant having a new canvas, hope you have lots of fun planning it out.

Linaria purpurea... and you can buy a named one, a beautiful pink one called 'Canon Went'.

Yes, they do seed themselves, and you get different colours popping up in unexpected places!

Many thanks to all who helped me with their knowledge. I now know that it is a Linaria.
