they're not all the same size. My yellow one was about 10 foot across till I removed a few of the outer branches so we could use the path. The red one more like 6 foot. Both considerably taller than me. Others are mere babies yet

No echium vulgare
the toadflax for me as well

No idea re the specific plant, alkaline soil here

Red campion as previously IDd
