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?

Help growing wildflowers

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?

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

I've removed a large phormium. It wasn't as deep rooted as I expected.
