Seseli montanum and/or hippomarathrum
As with the Athamantas I offered before, I'm not totally sure of the id of this. I seem to have had the same thing under two names - S.montanum and S.hippomarathrum. Either way it's a lovely small umbellifer with a compact cluster of finely divided green foliage at the base but fairly tall flowering stems.
The buds are reddish, opening white. Easy in any well drained sunny spot. Long lived but seeds about mildly and easy to control.
