Could anyone help me ID two of my favorite perennials, please. Both are tuberous, like partial sun. The plant in the middle photo is quite invasive.

Hardy geranium and variegated Solomon's Seal. Both are annoyingly enthusiastic growers but I love them in my garden.

I rely on both to fill space with little effort and expense on my part. Also Lysismachia and Bee Balm, shown below. I also have a lot of the dwarf bamboo Kuma Sasa, though this has caused headaches.

It looks more like G. nodosum

I thought I had the Kuma Sasa contained but its coming up in the cracks of my walkway. Oops! Blinking

The one plant even more enthusiastic than Soloman's Seal and Bee Balm is Wood Anemone. I think its completely crowded out the Bee Balm and working on a patch of Soloman's Seal.

I believe I have some of the wood anemome, but it hasn't proved a prolific grower for me. My Kuma Sasa (Panda Food) has invaded four of my neighbors, and only one of them seems to appreciate it.

I wonder why. Rolling on the floor laughing

I got mine from my father in law (it had been planted by his father in the 1950's). In his absolutely gorgeous Japanese garden in San Francisco, it was a hedge around the patio. Somewhere along the line, it was taken out and replaced by a boxwood hedge. I found a small pot of it out by his compost pile and asked if I could have it. It never grew well in S.F. or in the California Central Valley but in Reno, there's no stopping it. Confused
