Can anyone tell me what these are ?  Growing alongside the canal in Edinburgh.  I've gone through both my flower identification books but failed to find a match.  They're about 30-60cm high.

I read that and wondered why nobody had told me I had my own botanic garden.  ;D

Flowers from Skiathos.

















This gardenia smelled wonderful.
