If the pink flowering plant is pretty short then I would guess allium too
Cuz it looks alot like mine.
The other one I just have no clue.

The first looks a lot like ragweed!
The second is an alium! Pick a leaf off it, it should smell like onion!


the bulbs smelled like onions when I moved. I will move them this fall and hopefully they will get taller??
even with the stem of the plant being fuzz like that it could be ragweed?? should I wait and see or pull it out now???

Karen, - first pic -did you plant any of the Oriental Limelight artemisia there?
Here's mine pictured with the peony blooming in front.

2nd pic is either allium or garlic.
