    looks like a young salix caprea, goat willow.
    Beware, it'll be a tree next time you look at it

    Oh thanks @Hostafan1 is that a weed? It’s very close to house and drains, how tree-ish are we talking?

    you could leave  it until the flowers pass, leave the nectar for the bees, then have it out.
