Francoa sonchifolia also known as bridal wreath. There should be a rosette of broad leaves at the base, and then it throws up the flowering spikes.

Amistad is going to be huge.

Cosmos are starting to flower now, and the overwintered dahlias.

I'm glad you like the cosmos,Mrs Garden, I find they are good fillers while you wait for perennials to fill out.
