Are these weeds?

Total gardening newb here, sorry!

I think these are weeds, but am not sure.  They are tall with somewhat thick, bamboo-like stems.  Any ideas?  I'd like to go pull them out as the garden is a bit crowded (we just bought the house), but don't know if they are truly weeds. 

 Thanks!

  • They don't look like weeds, but who knows?

  • The name escapes me right now, sorry.  Take your pictures to Lowe's or Home Depot and talk to their Outside Lawn and Garden Department Manager, they should be able to help you identify it. 
  • At first glance, they look like peonies to me.

    The top picture does remind me of a Peony, especially the two buds that are visible. The bottom picture, that foliage looks like Phlox paniculata.

  • The peony is right behind it, this is a separate plant.  NB, thanks, it does look a lot like the Phlox paniculata, guess I'll wait to see if anything blooms :-)
