Meant to say that it is also slighty fragrant - Hi Drc, glad you like it too!

It looks like Erysimum "Bowle's Mauve", a.k.a the perennial wallflower. It's a short lived perennial, but dead easy to take cuttings from :)

The flowers certainly don't look like any anthirrinum I've ever seen!

They tend to live about three years.
