unknown plant from a mixed packet

No idea fidget, it's not my plant. Focus was a difficulty for me, you can't quite see the shape of the flowers can you?  I think it is Monarda citriodora, the owner had IDd it previously but forgotten

good point re if they've been indoors GD. But all the ones I've seen in GCs have been outside.

If they were outside and the ground isn't frozen, ours hasn't been frozen at all yet, plant them.

Evening primroses aren't primroses Shirley. Common names of plants are designed to confuse and they succeed

Primroses are hardy, plant them out.

You can move the plants if they're not where you want them. Otherwise collect the seeds and scatter them where you do want them. You can sow them in pots bit I wouldn't bother, they do OK without help 

Can I repot a honeysuckle?

Don't worry about the thread groups Sparkles, nobody else does. It all turns up on the same page

I agree with Dave re getting it in the ground if you can. 

Will my peony survive?

Part of the fun of gardening is that it's never 'once and for all' 

Though sometimes I wish just a little bit of it stayed done

I only have Molly the Witch and nothing has attacked her yet. Rabbits are having a good feast on other things though.

We've never asked what sort of paeony

I think you'll have to wait and see. Herbaceous paeonies  put up the leaves, then flower and no follow-up leaves.

Keep your fingers crossed and try to find the culprit as aym suggests

My first thought was Euonymus japonicus
