It's a Sisyrinchium, Pat. I have this one, a yellow one and also a purple (grandiflorum) which has long stalks.
Now, peonies, I planted one two years ago and I am not sure what they are supposed to do but I had one gorgeous flower on it last year and this year lots of stalks appeared and then I found the small unopenned flower heads had been eaten (I think) by something. Any ideas??

Thanks Polly - it's good to have some experts around.
I think peonies are jolly difficult. I long for a flower. I do know they don't tolerate being moved. Don't know what would have eaten your buds - little baskets!
