      Hi Martyn, I don't know which one it is as I don't grow them but it's a Polygala of some description.

            It is such a pretty plant and makes small mounds where it is is prolific.. It has quite a few names it goes by @martyn bromley.
            illegitimate child box, Creeping milkwort, Shrubby milkwort, Polygala chamaebuxus 'Rhodoptera', Polygala chamaebuxus 'Purpurea', Large-flowered box-leaved milkwort, Polygala chamaebuxus var. rhodoptera
