One photo is of the whole bed. Two of the up close photos are ones we are curious about. help with the others would also be appreciated. I believe some are He said the one that hasn’t yet bloomed will grow very tall. It has grown 1 1/2 ft. in last 2 weeks.

    The first is a Tradescantia, a light colored cultivar like ‘Iris Pritchard’ ( ). The second appears to be something leguminous, possible Baptisia, but it’s difficult to say for sure without seeing the flowers.
