I thought it looked like purple toadflax -Linaria purpurea.
A bit of a misnomer as it can vary from purple to pink. The bees love it in my garden as well.
Sarah Raven is selling the variety Canon Went for a special offer price of £9.76 each.
So you got yourself a bargain if it arrived on its own.
Just dead head it when the flowers fade or cut it down to a foot, and next year it will bulk up to a nice clump
