This appeared in my garden this spring. The foliage is about 3 to 4 feet high with flower stems about another foot higher. The flowers are finally emerging and open from the top down. They are a reddish purple color and about an inch in length

I'd say Sanguisorba officinalis. Lovely plant.

Thank you ladies for your help. It must be much more common in your part of the world than mine. I'd love to know how it got into my garden.
