A different world from the Fens
Hard to say how long, it's already branched a bit. I don't know which one it is but lean towards D. laureola, a native plant. A nice shrub for a shady spot
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.

But I'm a plant pedant Paul
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
i would have said that Willowherb was Epilobium hirsutum, Great or Hairy Willowherb
looks like astilbe buds to me
Looks like a Daphne, probably too young to flower
