This is a chenille plant, similar and related to this one to this:

I think otherwise. It looks like Leycesteria formosa (pheasantberry) to me. (To the best of my knowledge Acalypha isn't hardy in Britain. It's not a tree either - admittedly it's stretching it to call Leycesteria a tree rather than a shrub.)

Indeed. So sorry. I had not realized the source.

The source wasn't specified (posting from gardenbanter.co.uk is suggestive, but isn't definitive); however the description as a tree I think does eliminate Acalypha.

Since the photographs are unfortunately not very clear it's hard to be certain, but I think that they are

Leycesteria formosa (pheasantberry)

Lychnis coronaria (rose campion)
