Red Valerian

Hi Clive, I'm sorry that you do not agree with the revised identification, as you can see numerous others do.

If you google Red Valerian and look at the images of the flowers and leaves you will see that they match your image very well. In addition you will see that they vary in colour from white to deep red but not purple.

If you post your purple image others can give an opinion on what it might be.

Sorry if I have misinterpreted your comment above.
