    The first looks like a gaura.

    The second is Persicaria maculosa (aka Redshank)  … a common weed of agricultural and newly disturbed land. Related to some very garden-worthy plants … but this one’s best pulled up before it seeds.

    I agree, I love that pink guara seems we have to call it Oenothera lindheimeri now. 
    What’s with all the name changes?

    I agree too with those IDs.
    It's the new names for Dicentra and Sedum spectabile that get me @Lyn. Murder!
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I agree with them. The first plant is gaura and The second is Persicaria maculosa. and I must say the pink gaura looks very beautiful.
