I googled shizanthus and that certainly looks correct. The plant was in such heavy bloom that you couldn't see the foliage. Thanks.

Correct, the Butterfly Flower. Schizanthus x wisetonensis 'Star Parade' looks a good match ..

It will be Schizanthus x wisetonensis, not sure about 'Star Parade' as that might be a trade name.

'Starparade' and 'Hit Parade' are series names, they look similar
