Suckering shrub...

... and a garden escape (or, seen in a garden!).

If you find one small shoot of this plant, you will normally find a much bigger one nearby, sometimes on the far side of a wall, as they spread for yards.

Quite distinctive green upright stems (which turn woody after a year or two, jagged-toothed leaves with long points, and the orange flowers: this cultivar is double-flowered, the single-flowered one has the same foliage and form, but the flower is very much simple petals.
