    Pretty certain it's Ligularia,

    Wish I could see the leaves though, to be absolutely sure.

    Can't enlarge the picture as the file size is already set at max but they look like Erymurus (Fox Tail Lilies) to me.

    I say Ligularia too. Looks like "The rocket"

    Ligularia -

    Eremerus have strappy leaves and, as their other common name - Desert Candles - indicates, need good drainage and full sun to do well.

    I can see enough leaf to know it's not any sort of bulb or other monocot. My guess would be ligularia but I don't know them well enough to say which one
