Can someone help identify this plant, I have 3 of them in my yard. 1 is old and stalk is bark covered but has a flower bud, the other 2 are new growth coming up from ground. Before I start planting new things I would like to figure out what's already growing here.

Can you post a photo of the flower bud? Somehow it reminds me of one of my elderberry's that I keep chopping down, when it comes back, it looks much like the one you posted. I have never known of a peony that developed bark or a trunk like feature.

I think it's a tree peony as opposed to a herbaceous type. Their leaves are quite different.

The buds and shape of the leaves looks like peony but never seen any other than deep green color. Google results for images of peony tree turn up regular peony. But here is what buds look like.
