Physical Description
Linaria vulgaris (often known as common toadflax or butter and eggs), is a perennial plant with short spreading roots, erect to decumbent stems 3080 cm high, with fine, threadlike, glaucous (blue-green) foliage. The flowers are similar to those of the snapdragon, pale yellow except for the lower lip which is orange, borne on dense terminal racemes from midsummer through autumn. Fruits are capsules with winged seeds.
This plant is one of the numerous species of toadflax (Linaria), and is indigenous in large parts of Europe, including the United Kingdom, but has also escaped from cultivation in North America where it is a common weed of roadsides and poor soils. (From Wikipedia)

Looks like a member of the Scrophulariaceae family. Not sure which species, looks like a relative of Toadflax.
