    Maybe Sidalcea Elsie Heugh but more likely Linaria purpurea Canon J Went.

    Linaria Canon Went - easy from seed but does self-seed everywhere.
    I have the usual blue variety too.
    Lovely plants

    Billericay - Essex

    Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit.
    Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.

    I have them in my garden.Grown by seed and flowering for ages now already. They took about 2 years to get to a decent size though
