What might this leafy little plant be?

Is it possibly a Chinese lantern plant? Two different plants though. I’m not sure what I planted from seed here.

    The one on the left is a foxglove. I do think the other could be a chinese lantern plant.

    Thanks @GardenerSuze, I’m thinking of releasing both into the garden boarder once we get some rain and I can actually dig the ground.

    @Ilikeplants A friend liked to paint them, she grew them next to the compost bin as roots are invasive.

    That’s a good point @GardenerSuze - I might just bury the pot in the ground when the weather allows it. Hopefully that’ll restrict the roots.
