Pictures of several unknown plants are attached - each pair is a photo of the whole plant followed by a close-up. There are 6 plants all together. Thanks so much in advance for any help you can provide!

Looks like the first plant - with the red stem - is Red osier dogwood, also known as Red twig dogwood.

It's a popular native shrub usually planted to attract birds as well as Spring Azure butterflies, whose caterpillars need to eat the leaves. It's also planted because its bright red stems stand out in winter.
