Multiple plant identification

I have a number of tall and thin plant growing in an area of my garden I'm dedicating to wild flowers and perennials. But these are baffling me! Any thoughts on what they might be? Most things in my garden I recognise or I know I planted but these are unique anomalies!

1. Whitish colour under the leaf, soft texture


2. Red stem, small pink flower

3. Lush green in colour


4. Thin and straight, buds forming on top 
5. Bright green, slight jaggared leaf

    I think the first one is a butterfly bush, 2 is broadleaved willowherb 3 might be rosebay not sure on that one. 5 looks like great willowherb no idea on 4 though it looks like a willowherb as well! and  and the last one is some form of tree seedling, possibly a plum?

    1 is a self-seeded Buddleia davidii and 6 is Salix caprea (Goat willow.)  2,3 & 4 all look like various types of willowherb.  Not sure about 5.

    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.
