Anyone recognise this perennial?

This year I got a free packet of mixed perennial seeds from the garden centre. This plant really thrived, none of the others did very well. I have planted them in the garden and they are growing really well. No sign of any flowers yet and I have no idea what they are. Can anyone help?image

    It is not a Geum, but am not sure what it is.

    He calls her the chocolate girl
    Cause he thinks she melts when he touches her
    She knows she's the chocolate girl
    Cause she's broken up and swallowed
    And wrapped in bits of silver

    I'm a bit stumped too.  Do the leaves have any smell when you rub them?

    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.
  • I have a various geum and it doesn't resemble any one them - almost but not quite. However I will happily be proved wrong - whatever it is olivermadcat, the plant looks healthy and may yet flower this year. If it does, then please post a picture.

  • Thank you for all the replies. I have a few of these mystery plants taking over my flower bed and I noticed today that the leaves do have a smell, can't describe the smell but wasn't very nice. From the photo posted above, the leaves don't look the same to me. Like you say they are very healthy so hopefully there will be some flowers. Then we can answer the geum debate!
