I found these growing wild in my yard yesterday. They were growing about 3 feet tall. I live in upstate New York and the flowers were growing amongst tall weeds. Any help would be appreciated!

Can we see the whole plant? I need to see the leaves because it could be a number of things. Peonies would be my 1st guess.

Rereading your post, it probably isn't a peony. 3' would be pretty tall and they tend to flop. Smiling

My first thought was also Peonies (Paeonia) Although I know nothing about them since they don't grow this far south, I saw some beauties when visiting family in upstate N.Y. a few years ago ... and some were approximately 36 inches in height. A few random bloom photos from our database:
