Notes:

Photo 1: as I recall, was called “Ducks Blood” maybe, due to its rich red veining. It can get up to 3 ft tall. Photos 2 & 3: These just grew in my garden! kind of pretty….#2 maybe butterfly bush? It has not bloomed, yet. #3 kind of tropical with small flowers. Thank You!

    1- Maybe a type of dock (Rumex). This might be (Rumex sanguineus), common names include red-vein dock, Bloody dock, and Bloodwort. http://wimastergardener.org/?q=Rumex_sanginueus 2- Too blurry to tell. 3- I can’t see the flowers and leaves clear enough to be certain. It could be either pokeweed (Phytolacca americana), or Virginia sweetspire (Itea virginica).
