What is this plant?

We've just moved house and this is popping up everywhere in the front garden and driveway, it has orange carrot like rizomes and has dead growth from last year. Can anyone tell me what it is please, I'm assuming it's invasive and how is best to eradicate it if it is.

    It could be Valerian.

  • I think you may be correct. The rhizomes are not orange I was misinformed and I was lead to believe this plants was spreading underground but having dug some up myself I think they have just been self seeding over time as the property has been empty for a few years

    Seconding the Valerian suggestion.
