Calling The Gardeners!

I would love it if someone could identify this plant for me. I found a shrivelled looking bulb type thing in the garden ages ago, I was going to chuck it in the compost bin but I noticed that it had a bud, so I shoved in the empty bed (it's not empty now, it's full of weeds) and it is growing.



Apologies that the pictures are not amazing, it's really bright sunshine today, plus I've hurt my leg and bending is not too much fun at the moment!

Please let me know if you have any ideas - especially if it is a triffid and I need to take urgent steps.

  9. It looks rather like the peony we had in a previous garden a few houses back. But don't quote me on it!

  10. I would say Peony too - they often take years to flower but when they do - glorious.
