Capnoides sempervirens
Airy plant with blue-green foliage and two-toned pink-and-yellow flowers. Not eye-popping - best when viewed from fairly close up. Although listed as a perennial, I don't think ours ever return from the roots. We're not in danger of losing them from the garden though, since they self-seed around moderately - it's always a surprise where they'll pop up any one year.

This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
