Plant ID

We moved to our new house last year and there are some plants/flowers that I have not yet been able to identify. This particular plant grows to a height of 1 to 1.5 metres, has beautiful purple flowers which the bees adore, it doesn’t have a scent. Can anyone help please?

    Your plant is purple toadflax (Linaria)

    Hi and Welcome June,
    It is a Linaria, they are nice easy plants and they also come in pink and white versions.
    Good Luck with your new garden, looks like you have some good things in there already.

    Tiny bit more info here the other day.

  • Many thanks - I’ll look out for the pink and white versions.  This is a great plant for filling gaps and giving height to the garden.
