Having another closer look

Having another closer look with wall germander in mind I'd go with that suggestion. Calyx teeth all tally too. Chalk rock round here too where it is often found. Thanks very much.

Rarity

I think you will find that Wall Germander is an unusual garden escape and whatever is often found on your local chalk is something else. Perhaps you could post a photo or two?
