Fooled me completely!

Description:

This was in a planted-up area (cornflower etc.), so may not be native. Looks wrong for Yarrow (flower-head not umbel-like), and reddish stem doesn't look right either. Also seems unlike Sneezewort I have seen before.

Many thanks for the identification

Completely new to me: fooled me as to the family, too! It's easy to be wise after the event - the similarity to Meadowsweet, and the rose-like flowers are obvious, once you know.
I wonder if it is native, or if it came with the wild-flower mix?
