Is anyone able to identify this plant? I have had it in the garden for over 12 years and cut it back each winter. This year it had one yellow flower and now it has produced a huge amount of seed pods - photos attached.

Looks like seed pod of a (tree) peony, which one I don't know. Sorry.

It had to have had more than one flower, Theoldpostoffice, since it takes flowers to make seeds.

it looks like Paeony lutea. if you cut it back every year then you are losing flowers. wait until after flowering before you cut it back.

Welcome to GoY too :o)
