Hi there

My wife and I moved in to a new house with a large perennial garden, and there is one particular plant that seems to be multiplying all over the place and we haven't seen any flowers or anything yet, so just wanted to know what it was before we decide whether to rip it out or not. Thank you for any help!

I don't recognize it but it appears you are going to have lots of blooms in the near future. Hopefully someone who is familiar with plants in the Pacific N.W. will be along soon and share it's identity.
