I found it on a Scottish blog so am assuming it's the right ID. Common Valerian. I never knew there were different types of this plant, apart from the white variety. Still learning after all these years

Because my garden is very over-planted, the plants around it help to keep mine in check. It's never allowed to grow out too much and comes back year after year, very hardy indeed.

The leaf is the one in the picture behind the flower.

Bye bye Clematis Cassis

My clematis Fond Memories did just that, died. I bought another to replace it only to find the following year, the dead one returned. They look good together but have to say, are very susceptible to wilt.

The open flowered Dahlia's are a magnet in my garden. The advice above is spot on and the list is endless on what you can plant. Very good luck and well done on gardening for Bees and in turn other beneficial insects..

It wasn't the usual flower shape of the Valerian but more flat headed like Cow Parsley

Oh, I didn't think it was Meadowsweet as it was pink and not as fluffy. Will check it out, thanks.

Saw this growing in a meadow in Scotland, it had a beautiful scent, anyone know what it is?

If the plant is very tall it probably is Scabious 'Cephalaria gigantea ' and yes, it is a Bee magnet.

What is this?

Links don't seem to be working on here. But it is definitely a moth, very similar to the Buff Ermine moth. Very beautiful and so glad you don't destroy them.
