    Second might be an allium?

    Is the second one attached to the leaves that go in a circle round the stalk?

    If so, Phuopsis stylosa, bees love itimage

    Nutcutlet, does it have a weird smell, like foxy or garlicky. I may have it at one time but never knew the name.image

    yes, very strong Fritillary. I think it's the leaves rather than the flowers

    I think the star shaped foliage is attached to the thing of interest.  I'd just clipped a large privet that it is living under so there are privet'ey clippings in the picture, sorry for the confusion.

    yep, Phuopsis stylosa

    Yes, I have it. Very pretty but a bit of a thug when it gets going. I dig lots out every year.
