Maybe Solomon Seal

Are those buds at the bottoms of the stalks? Like they are going to branch? Strange. Can't wait to see what they unfold into.

They don't look like my Soloman's Seal but mine are variegated. I don't know if that makes a difference.

Regulator, can you share where these plants are located?

I was thinking common milkweed, Asclepias syriaca but looking at this article it apparently is difficult to distinguish from dogbane (Apocynum cannabinum) at this stage. This article explains how to tell the difference:
