The 2nd pic is Heuchera Palace purple. The 1st I can guess Peony, but it is only a guess. My Lupin really looks close to that, but mine don't have teeth on its' leaf edges.

From a distance I was wondering if the first was a lupin, but upon a closer look I'm pretty sure it is not.

#1 is a Helleborus. You should have flowers in March or so.

#1 definitely a variety of Hellebores (Helleborus) Here's an image from the database showing leaf close up:


#2 definitely a variety of Coral Bells (Heuchera)

First - hellebore
second - a heuchera but not Palace Purple, which is an old variety with a rounder leaf and without heavy ruffles. This one is a newer variety.

The hellebore kept bugging me but I couldn't think of what it actually was beyond a peony. Glad you guys had working brains for that!! Hilarious! Thumbs up
