Lost label but what is it?

This is sending up 3/4 reddish shoots, which at this stage look a little sweetpea like. But not sown any so I know its not that. No obvious corm/bulb/rhizome either.

So any suggestions please.

It looks as it has come from an established root rather than a recently sown seed. Our Lathrus vernus is just coming through now and looks similar.

Didn't I send you some Lathyrus vernus seeds last year? They do indeed look like L. vernus.

Oh the mystery is solved then!Thats why they look like sweet peas! It's great sometimes when you have mystery shoots they can turn out to be anything............
little shop of horrors? We can never remember what and where we have planted Spring bulbs [ senior moments aplenty] so it's always a surprise when hyacinths and tulips pop up.

No its not fresh seed and the pot has been there since october, something I potted up.
I didnt get to sowing the seed and I know I havent lifted any fron the 3 places in the garden where I have them.

Could it be Impatiens omeiana? I know I had a pot of it given by a friend. I cant find that anywhere, though there are several 'dead looking' pots that it might be.
