Back in early November last year I asked for I.D. on a plant growing in a dry, shady area of my garden.

Some GoYers suggested Campanula, Silene or Sweet Rocket (Hesperis matronalis) and I am pleased to say the plants are now starting to bloom.

They are a pretty shade of pink, not too tall, mildly perfumed. Here they are in November …

and here’s how they look today … foliage of Photinia behind.

pretty sure they are Sweet Rocket, from a free pack of wildflower seeds with a gardening magazine!

It's a lovely colour and definitely belongs to the Brassica family. I'm pleased you found out what it is :)
