Plant ID please!

Hello! 
First post here!  :)

New to gardening and in my second year of having a garden so knowledge is very limited and hoping someone may be able to ID these two plants for me?
Thanking in advance!
Hope everyone had a sunny day in the garden.

    Hi @Nikitaloring, welcome to the forum  :). Don't know what the first one is, but the second looks like a type of bamboo.

    The top photo looks like a Phormium Tenax.
  • I would agree with phormium for the first and bamboo for the second.
  • Hi.
    First post here also.

    Could someone identify this please?

    I ask because recently, I've been standing in my garden and assuming someone in a nearby garden has been smoking cannabis. Yesterday I  realised it's this plant!

    I bought and planted the bulb last summer, but didn't note the name.

    ItsI just under 2ft tall in this pics.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    Tommy

    Looks like a Crown Imperial Fritillary to me. Didn't realise they smelt of dope!
  • Thanks DampGardenMan. Think you've nailed it. 

    Well worth in the £3 I paid👃👃

    I always think they smell of fox pee.

  • It’s one of those plants like marmite you either like it or not, I don’t find it offensive I quite like the smell.
    it is supposed to be a mole deterant I quess because it’s the roots of the plant that gives off the smell.

    I agree Lyn ... but smell can be quite subjective I suppose ...
