Is this a plant or a weed

Hi, Can anyone let me know if this leaf belongs to a weed. I have a few in my garden ( new home) and I haven’t seen any flowers but the root structure is not weed like. If you know the name of the plant, please could you provide me with it?

I believe this to be Rodgersias (Rodgersia spp. and cvs., Zones 3–8) are one of the most handsome perennials around with their wonderfully quilted, palmate leaves. There are several striking species, so it’s hard to go wrong. They generally reach 3 to 6 feet tall and wide. Their fluffy flower plumes resemble those of astilbes and range in color from white to pink in mid- to late summer.
