Can someone please identify this plant


can someone please identify this plant?

it was growing in my back (south facing) garden and wasn't all that much until 3 years ago when i moved it to my front (north facing) drive and popped it in a raised bed of sandy soil.

it started flowering in june with a couple of chocolate flower stems and has increased its flower stems over the last few years to the current image...bees and sparrows go mad for the flowers which stay until late august/early september

many thanks
