Answer: The plants you're looking for are Ricinus and Rodgersia respectively. Ricinus is an annual in the Pacific Northwest. Rodgersia is more cold tolerant and is perennial. Seeds of both are available through Thompson & Morgan, PO Box 1308, Jackson, NJ 08527-0308.
I've seen both plants thriving in sunny sites in the Seattle area so they should grow well in your garden.
