wildflower


I left this growing in the fence border, but I think it is a weed. It is pretty, with small blue flowers going up flower spikes.
I cannot find my wildflower book to tell me what it is that I have left growing.
Two more nights to go for me before gardening...

All weeds are just "plants in the wrong place"- so I would call this wanted, beautiful plant a "flower". :) Wish I knew what it was too.

Hi David,
I think you might have a purple salvia there. I grew them last year and they were wonderful.

Keep it! It's a fab plant called Linaria purpurea, or Toadflax.

Although it is commonly perceived as a weed it is definitely garden worthy. Insects love it and its very pretty! I have planted one in my garden!

It's not a Toadflax, it Common Speedwell (Veronica)

Sorry I've got that wrong, it is a Toadflax.
