Notes:

I live in Central, PA. these are growing very strong in the rear of our new rental. We have permission to garden as we wish within reason but, want to know what they are before we decide to remove and replace them.

    They look like the leaves/stalks of peonies. Peonies can sometime be difficult to get to flower so you may not see flowers without some amendment to the soil – check with plant stores or nurseries in your area for the proper care of peonies in PA.

    I posted this once before but I think I must have unsubscribed so if this is a repeated answer my apologies… The leaves/stems look to me like Peonies in early spring. Peonies can take a few years to flower after planting and can sometimes need soil amendment to begin/continue flowering after being neglected so you might want to contact a local greenhouse or nursery to find out the proper care and treatment of peonies in central PA. Lucky you – peonies are one of my favorites.

    Yes, I agree. I’d say that they are keepers.

    Thank You for all your replies, now that I know what they are and how Beautiful they can be I would love to see them bloom. I read up on them a little and found they can be troublesome to get to bloom. I found out from my neighbors that they have been in place for many years now and have been neglected and they said they can’t remember if they ever bloomed. They get plenty of sun and seem to be growing strong, I put Miracle Gro Organic food around them but, I’m unsure what else to do in attempt to revive their blooms. I would Love to see them bloom and please add any suggestions that may help me in achieving this by next season preferably or this season yet if even possible.
    TY in advance for any help and suggestions
