Is this a lineria?

I have always thought this was a lineria Canon Went - but all the descriptions I have read recently describe the flowers as pale pink. These are definitely mauve/purple ...

    It is Linaria purpurea, not Canon Went.
    How can you lie there and think of England

  • It’s linaria purpurea (purple toadflax). ‘Canons Went’ is a different variety of the same plant.
