Could someone please identify these for me? Both pink and purple flowers are on the same plant. I suspect they may actually be weeds - but can't find a name for them either way!




It's Toadflax. I've just had mine I.D. On here :o)
It's a pretty weed, I will keep some of mine, like your pink one :o))

Thank you for that! These are in my neighbour's garden and look so pretty, whether weeds or not!

Otherwise known as 'Linaria'. You can actually buy a pink version called 'Canon Went'. :-)

They say you learn something every day, well I have this all round my garden and always thought it was a member of the Veronica family. Thanks for the info.
