These flowers have appeared this year in our garden in amongst a bunch of Galium Aparine. They have the same stem and leaves as the Galium but are completely different to the usual tiny white flowers you can also see in one of the photos.
Looks very much like a garden perennial Phuopsis stylosa Caucasian crosswort.
Thank-you so much. That's definitely what it is though I certainly didn't put it there. The fact that it was growing amidst something else with very similar leaves had me fooled. Thank-you again.
Good call, and welcome to NaturePlus (I notice your recent arrival and answers).
The old Latin name, Crucianella stylosa, gives a nod to the crosswort name through its 'cruci' part.
