Unknown plant/weed?

Does anyone have any idea what this plant/weed is?  It appeared a few months ago - I thought it was a weed (I didn't plant it!) so I pulled it up but it has reappeared.  image

    Possibly a Hypericum judging by the leaves.

    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.
  • Thanks very much for this.  I'm glad it's a plant and not a weed as it looks quite pretty (though a quick google suggests it self-seeds readily which I guess is how it turned up in my garden!).  Anyhow, thanks so much for the information.

  • Hypericum androsaemum, "Tutsan". If you pull off some of the leaves and let them dry they smell curry like. British native, pretty in flower and useful for a shady spot. Look up its medicinal and other uses.
