Its very early for peony to show any leaves IF it has been kept out side
I would love a birds eye view of this
The leaves and shoot look like a BLACKBERRY
Be intresting to see what the others say you are only down the coast from me as well

Not like what my peony leaves looked like ,not too sure what it could be.

Not peony and, possibly, a weed.

Our peonies are showing their first leaves but this is not one. Begonia? Fatsia? Don't know.

My peonies are starting to grow and don't look anything like this. I agree with Moon grower - I think it's a weed!

Thumbs up Sheila!

Peonies would have leaves in pairs. Brambles would have the leaves coming on one at a time. I can't quite see which one this one is doing! : )

Not the best photos to work with (please don't take offence), but I'm wondering whether it may be one of the Impatiens family............

what about the variegated form of ground elder? Sold as a garden plant as it is less thuggish [apparently] than the all green one.

I certainly withdraw my Impatiens with these photos!

Stil don't think it is a peony ours produce rather more than one shoot which looks very pinkish red and each shoot them produces leaflets which at first look reddish then turn a dark green. Sorry still looks like a weed to me!

In my garden today the trollius [globe flower] is showing its new leaves and they are not dissimilar to this. they have a reddish ste , like yours and the veination and shape of the leaf is like yours.
if it is its a nice plant.
