    Peony possibly.

    Peony, coming up through ivy with a bit of aquilegia in front (at the right hand side).

    See how the peony performs, if it was mine I'd remove the ivy as they appreciate getting as much sun as possible to their tubers for maximum number of blooms.

    I agree, get as much ivy out as you can. It also looks like it's near a conifer (hedge?) which is less than ideal. Contrary to popular belief, peonies can be moved if you have a more suitable place for it, just don't plant it deep.

    @JennyJ @amancalledgeorge @pitter-patter thank you everyone! I did wonder if it was the peony re-growing 😊 it grew there last time away from the conifer and our in a lovely show! I’ll tackle that ivy then 👍 thanks!
