Whatever it is, it isn't what you ordered  and is going to dominate that hedgerow, I'd take it out quickly and ask your supplier for something that you ordered.

I can smell that chicken from here

I'm a very seasonal cook and haven't preserved tarragon in the past - I just really look forward to it appearing in the spring for lemon and tarragon roast chicken or a fantastic tarragon flavoured new potato salad, but ............... I might just try freezing some this year

Autumn Herb Garden

It's borderline hardy in the UK and benefits from a bit of protection.  I cut mine back to about 8" in late autumn and place a large plastic flowerpot over the crown - just to keep the worst of the weather off it whilst allowing ventilation through the holes in the pot.  That seems to suit it in this garden.
