Possibly Viper's Bugloss

Possibly Viper's Bugloss

Observation - Possibly Viper's Bugloss - UK and Ireland. Description: The first 3 photos are a plant on the beach near Ferring, the other 2 were near Lake Balaton in Hungary. I had admired them in Hungary where they were quite common so I was surprised to find such a lovely specimen in the UK. Are they the same species?
