Potatoes grow tubers from the stem if those are buried (or partially so) and tubers turn green then purple on exposure to sunlight.  I think that's what has happened here.

I agree - small potatoes.

My viburnum Bodnantense has been flowering in the past few weeks, instead of waiting for midwinter, so it could be one of those.

I leave it alone until the leaves have gone brown and withered, then I pull them off.  You might like to remove the seedheads tho, to stop it self seeding.

The leaf damage looks like the work of leaf cutter bees to me. 

The vine weevils would have to be enormous to take out chunks of leaf that size.

For anyone thinking of doing this, a good rule of thumb is - biggest bulbs at the bottom, smallest at the top
