Petasites fragrans yes or no?

can I move my piers flame again.

I wouldn't want to move it again in the same year - it needs a chance to get its roots growing to feed the plant.

What's wrong with where it is at the moment?

Weeds ?

... or as Bob says, Morning Glory - mine sometimes self-seed.  If they've got the remains of a black/brown seedcase at the base it might be worth potting them on and waiting to see what happens

ID please.

You may well be right - they all look very similar - hard to tell from a photo

Thought you'd have learned by now Edd, not to believe a single thing the DM tells you.

Don't like the sound of that - two fag ends!!!   Sounds like the sweepings from around the recycling bins!
