Hard to tell without seeing the leaves but it looks like a chocolate eupatorium. Does it die back down to the ground in the winter? If it doesn't, it's something else.

Doesnt die back but leaves get frosted
Flowers are 3-4mm deep and 2=3 mm across when fully out

Ageratina ligustrina, I believe - nice plant, not widely known/grown here. I'm assuming you live in a mild area. Did it come with the garden? If so look out for other good plants. Whoever planted it was a bit of a connoisseur.

Thank you florauk. You are spot on!. Yes the garden was originally planted by a connoisseur and it is mild (Anglesey) Lots of other unusual plants eg 40 ft high eucryphia now flowering. This was the only one I couldnt identify

Oh, Anglesey - gorgeous. That Eucryphia must be a picture. Lucky you.
