Ha ha, looks like Valerian to me. I have a friend who really wants some white Valerian for her garden ... I haven't seen any for a long time.

I have white valerian Shirley, but I almost killed it last year, so it needs recovery time before I can propagate it.

That stuff grows like weeds here...pink as well as white.

I have to say that Valerian is not a favourite of mine ... the pink/red seems to grow just about anywhere ... even through the stones on the beach!

I always kill off the hebes, or they just they disappear.
