IDs, please

I try to help around here whenever I can, but now I've got more questions for you. I have a couple of identification issues for, you, plus a couple of questions. I'm in Wisconsin, north side of zone 5. Here's the first one. This was here when we moved in, a few years ago. It was small at the time, but it gets bigger every year. I assumed it was a weed, but left it, only pulling up new sprouts to keep it from spreading. The tiny white flowers aren't too exciting (though I do like the red shading on the buds), but the leaves are really different. Here's a view of the whole thing. The flowers are mixed with iris blossoms, in this pic. It's over eighteen inches tall. The leaf stems spring up from the base of the plant. The leaves extend straight out from each side of the stems, and they're at a 45 degree angle to the stem. In other words, if the stems are at a 45° to the ground, the leaves are parallel to the ground (horizontal). And finally, here's an uprooted one, showing the tuberous roots. This isn't a question. I just thought I'd show you some liverwort. I saw this in a lot of plants at the garden centers. They water the heck out of their plants. Anybody recognize this bush? Note the branch with opposing leaves, in the upper left. The flowers are maybe two inches wide. Stunted irises. From the following year. I'm not sure if it's the plant or something in the soil. Any ideas? A different iris plant. I don't really have much of a question about it, except what the heck? Check out that cornflower. Isn't it huge? Okay, that's a rhetorical question. It's the big bush on the left. It was just over three feet across, when it started to bloom, and it fell over under its own weight. It now looks like a big nest, and is starting to get new sprouts in the open center. It's lying on top of a dianthus, and partly on the spiderwort, but I've left it because I want to see what it's going to do. It's about 4-1/2 feet wide. I keep finding these. Any idea what they are? Thanks in advance, for your help!
