Tufted Loosestrife, Lysimachia thyrsiflora.
Helsinki mystery flower, can you identify this?

This isn't the best picture I've ever taken, but I hope it's good enough that you can identify the plant.

Again I'm not familiar with Finnish plants, but in England I would call this Tufted Loosestrife, Lysimachia thrysiflora. A rare plant here which is rarely seen in flower.
thanks adrian, you're correct!
