Could be a coreopsis.  If you are you're very lucky, the slugs destroyed mine before it had a chance to produce a decent shoot.  Enjoy.

If you want a fabulous display, probably yes.  If you noticed, Monty lifted his tulips and planted them in a nursery bed out of the way, where they'll carry on growing until the bulbs have grown enough to produce another fine display, I think he said it would be about 3 or 4 years.  If you have the room you could do that but you'll still need to buy new ones for a good display next year.

artjak I am so with you on Valerian I spent a long time last year clearing my front garden and still it comes up.  The worst is the neighbours both sides have a bit so I'm always pulling up tiny little seedlings.  It grows to gigantic proportions and the roots have disloged paving stones.  It is pretty (I too love the white version) but if I never saw any again I wouldn't cry.

 This is my front garden 4 years ago, courtesy of google maps.  As you can, red valerian everywhere!  Unfortunately, due to a change of circumstance, the front only got worse until last year when I cut everything down and weeded out a ton of red valerian, brambles and other assorted delights.  My front now looks like this:

 I do love weeding.
