The scent from V. officinalis is lovely. I always think it's nicer if you don't stand too close. Might they have been cut earlier and having a second try at flowering? that would account for the lack of height and the lateness. Mine are over.

It looks rather like Valeriana officinalis but 2 foot is a bit short for that

It's Ok in the right garden (mine) 

I've got both hirsutum and angustifolium (and several others), they don't cause me a lot of bother.

I find it difficult to ID a flower like that. I like to see them growing, to see the leaves, the height and where it's growing

Bryonia dioica, White Bryony

Poisonous but poisoning rare because it doesn't taste good

You can rely on the bees etc if they're about. Have you got plenty of insects visiting the flowers?
