Un ID-d plant (updated).

Someone has 'borrowed' my wildflower field guide, so any help appreciated. It's pretty hardy - it's on the rock breakwater, and the next plant of any sort in a seawardly direction (about 10 metres away) is splash-zone seaweed. Thanks to all tree who have told me it's a wallflower. I always through walls flowers would be more dowdy than this.

Hi Peter,
Wonder if this could be a variety of wallflower (Erysimum cheiri)growing wild. Have ssen a similar plant although plain yellow, not splashed with red, growing on castle walls and rocks. Have just visited Lindisfarne and there was a lot around the abbey and the walls near the harbour.

Damn! Beaten to it... Was just admiring the wallflowers in my garden and suddenly realised what your mystery flower was!
