I'm surprised it couldn't take a move after 2 years

At this time of year I'd water something in but be careful of overwatering. The plant isn't using water or it wouldn't be limp. Don't feed until it picks up (if it does) same reason

Definitely not a buddleia. All the others you mention are herbaceous perennials, they don't have woody trunks. This is a shrub or tree,

My garden, site of gravel diggings from the horse and cart days, was used as a dump for years before our arrival. We have, on the down side, lots of agricultural plastic sacks and metal containers (dread to think what they contained), glass, plastic, bits of asbestos, carpet, rusting metal, a fridge. On the plus side, large lumps of concrete, big enough to build a good solid set of steps and a 'rock face', and some lovely old hand made bricks, enough for a summerhouse wall. Still to find, the Reliant Robin my neighbour dumped there.

Of the suggestions so far I think Invicta's is most likely. Definitely buddleia or lavatera, don't know deutzias well enough to say.

Did you plant it or did it just turn up Mrs G?

If you've had a weed patch, dug, sprayed or whatever, you'll have long term germination of more weeds. Sowing direct will give you the problem of sorting out which are weeds.  Dandelions and docks are great seeders and hard to pull out, if you don't get the whole root they come back. I think I'd wait and see what comes back after we've had a rain and things are growing. If you have regrowth of perennial weeds, spray when they've grown plenty of leaves. If it's just seedlings you can hoe them off.

What sort of wildflowers are you thinking of?

Which one have you got Primrose ?

D, tangutica is good tempered, lovely scent, shiny bright green leaves unlike 'Eternal Fragrance' whose leaves are rather dull looking. and then nice red berries and often a second crop of flowers

That's accurate enough for me Forester Likely to be a fairy ring but weedkillers don't work on fungi. I don't worry about them
