smells just like mashmellows.... rescued from pasture before mower hit it. Im in Tehama County California, Corning
I don't see the spur that Linaria vulgaris has. Could this be Snapdragon, Antirrhinum sp.?
I agree with snapdragon, and the smell fits. Not all snapdragons have the smell. The presence of the smell was actually a criterion for my most recent purchase of a yellow snapdragon. I probably wouldn't have described it as marshmallow, but in retrospect, I can see that.
Ecrane3, can you explain the lack of a spur? And judging by all the pots and associated gardening in the background, I suspect there is ample opportunity for a stray snapdragon seed to be introduced.
The flowers look too big to be Linaria vulgaris IMO, they have quite tiny flowers. These are much more snapdragon-like.
i cant tell, it looks like both of them.. maybe a closer image will help. ?
Ditto to a yellow-flowered cultivar of Antirrhinum majus. Kwanjin is right on it not being Common Toadflax.
Oops, I glanced at it quickly, but see now from the additional photos that it is indeed Antirrhinum majus. Sorry.
