Description:

Came across this lovely plant in a day centre garden in Ventnor about two years ago, where it was very well established in fact becoming quite rampant.
Have since found it growing in Ventnor Botanic Gardens where these photos were taken, I am suspicious that my original find also originated from there!The plant was not labelled, but am sure it is Scrophularia sambucifolia.

Subspecies

I have just uploaded a photo of S. sambucinifolia ssp. sambucinifolia for comparison. My specimen was in its native habitat, but it was very useful to see the photos of your specimen.
