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.
    He calls her the chocolate girl
    Cause he thinks she melts when he touches her
    She knows she's the chocolate girl
    Cause she's broken up and swallowed
    And wrapped in bits of silver
  • It’s linaria purpurea (purple toadflax). ‘Canons Went’ is a different variety of the same plant.
