    I presume you mean the pink one?  Its Valerian, grows everywhere but very pretty and has medicinal properties.  I've got some self seeded in my garden.

    Looks like Valerian - self-seeds all over the place.
    Very pretty, but keep it under control or it'll be everywhere.

    This type of valerian is not the medicinal type

    Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.

    I agree with Perki. It seeds everywhere so keep an eye on it.

    Oh ok, thanks for this info.   It's in a separate bed away from the rest of the garden, so I won't propagate it, obviously.  hv never known its name, so thanks for this image

    Be careful, it'll propagate itself.

    The seeds are tiny and covered in down, just a slight breeze and they'll travel a long way
