    I think it might be Valeriana officinalis, (valerian). Likes shady dampish places, Smells nice.

    Not to be confused with Centranthus rubra, also known as valerian.

  • Many thanks for your reply nutcutlet ,will google it . Thanks.

    Interesting.  It has leaves that resemble peony

  • Thanks for your interest ,unfortunately three of these appeared without warning .I took the photo on the day I discovered them and they all look similar . I don't think there is a tuber , just a mass of creamy coloured roots . Hope this helps . Thanks Wendy .

    I'd go with Nutcutlet's suggestion - Valeriana officinalis

    I think that poster is in the US - perhaps it looks different from that far away image

    My paeonies certainly look quite different image
