In our cottage garden my wife and I have a couple of mysterious "circles" of chutes coming up and we aren't sure what they are. They clearly are not weeds and they may be something that we inadvertently moved around.

Here is a second patch of less mature plants:

They have nice foliage, and the higher patch is about 20" high at this point. When they first arose they almost looked like purple asparagus chutes.

Here is what they look like when they first emerged a couple of weeks ago...
