I have a plant coming up in my garden that looks like a peony but I didn't plant it. I am wondering if there is a plant that looks similar to a peony sprout.

It might be a peony, Jessie. They die right back to the ground in winter, and sprout anew each spring. Some peonies live for 50 years or more. But a picture of the plant will help us a lot to decipher what it might be.

Also, if you could please fill in your profile with your location that also helps a lot with plant ID.

Hi jessieb, Welcome!
Can you possibly take a photo of the sprout and upload it here? We have some really talented plant ID'ers around here and someone might recognize it and be able to tell you whether it's a Peonies (Paeonia) or not.

I found a few peony photos in our database showing emerging growth:
