I have got a few of these. The photos are of 2 different ones.
The brown sticks are where I pruned them. I think there were flowers on them last year. The whitsh folded bits are new leaves coming up.
Thanks very much.
SOLVED: Does anyone know what this plant this is please?
Anemones, I think. There are many species and hybrids. Do you have a photo of the flowers?
Thank you, you've got it! You are hereby awarded an honourary doctorate from Oxford ;)
I don't have a pic of the flowers, but they look like the pink ones here:
