Is it just a weed?

Thanks! image

    Thanks everyone for all of your responses.

    From all of the suggestions I think a tree peony would be the closest match. However the leaves on the plant in question seems to have more pointed/jagged leaves.

    Would you guys agree?

    Thanks again all image

    I have tree paeonies with leaves just like that. What is the base of the plant like?

    It's always difficult with photos, you can't get the texture  of the plant

    The brown stem at the bottom in that last photo makes it look very much like a tree peony to me.

    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.
