    Only a guess...could it be a Buddlia? 

  • Maybe a goat willow seedling. Shouldn't thin you'd want one growing quite so close to the house!

    Looks like a willow species to me, not a buddleia anyway

    In the sticks near Peterborough

    Even bushes are babies at first Chloe and it's definitely not a herbaceous perennial so bush it is.  That looks like goat willow to me too and needs pulling out before it gets too big and its roots really take hold.
