This is a hypericum and I think the species is ‘androsaemum’. There are two plants in the garden – the second has only just appeared this year in a shady spot in what I refer to as ‘Plot 2’.

This is a photograph of the original plant which is also in a shady area surrounded by walls on three sides, although it does benefit from diffused sunlight through trees during part of the day. I think it is this positioning and light source which results in such intense colours, although I have had quite a few poor photographs due to its location too.
