      It looks rather like a Canna leaf to me. Strange growth habit though. It could just be a weak tuner or one that comes into growth too late. Where in the country are you?

        I've had this when tulips are planted too deeply, turns them blind

          Thanks for the replies. Looks like I'll have to dig it up at the weekend and replant shallower

            Looks like it could be Marestail/Horsetail. A particularly difficult weed to deal with.
