does it have a white runner underground when you dig it up? If yes then it is enchanter's nightshade; Circaea lutetiana. it is a bit of a thug I am afraid. a pain to dig out.

I've got it in this garden, it seems to pop up in various places but I don't find it bothers me too much. If it comes up in a place where I don't want it I just pull it up. The flowers remind me of little stars :)

I try to get it out before the little stars appear though...

Pain in the proverbial - long thinnish white roots that spread everywhere and break easily. I never did manage to eradicate it from one particular garden in 25 years, probably because it was next door too...
