There are actually several different types of amaranthus (pygmy torch) so it could still be one. It also looks similar to perennial lobelia. It will be easier to identify when/if it blooms.

The second one looks very familiar but....I just can't think...

Thanks Alan!! I'm glad to hear the first still may be pigmy torch! I've done a search on the second one but still haven't came up with anything!! It just keeps taller and taller with no sign of a bloom bud as with the first picture?

ideaGosh, I'm totally drawing a blank on the 2nd photo,
are the stems woody?

I agree that the first might well be an Amaranthus of some type,
do you remember if anyone sent you seeds of "Love Lies Bleeding"?
Amaranthus caudatus has foliage that is sort of chartreuse.
why Just a wild guess.
