I Donít Suppose Anyone Knows What This Plant Is?

I found a tiny plant growing in my garden. I thought it was a Broom as l get a lot of those growing here.
Now this plant has a flower bud on it, l have realised, itís not a Broom, at all.
I wonder if anyone knows what it is?

Thank You, if you do.

The closest I can come up with so far is a type of Peony. I have something similar although it has dark red leaves.

It looks a bit like a very poorly, anaemic looking baby Rhodedendron or Azalea family to me, Art.

If it is, they must have Ericaceous compost and feed, and watered with rain water, not tap water, else they won't thrive at all.

This is how dark the leaves should be, and yours look very pale compared.

Where did you get it from may I ask?

Mups, Thank You but l feel sure itís not a Rhododendron or an Azalea as l have them both in my garden. The leaves are like either a Broom or a Lupin.

I wonder if Muddy is right and it is a weed?

As for Longy, heís done a runner and is probably in the LTP as we speak!
