I planted 3 of those at my old house, they are Hakuro Hishiki willows (Flamingo Willow is a cute nickname).
They grow like crazy, so the trick is to cut them back really far in the fall so that you can take advantage of the pretty pink growth as long as possible in the spring before having to cut them back. The pink is actually new leaves.
Black-eyed Susans. I know that they are as common as dirt, but I like them. In the background are grape leaves. The grapes are going to be VERY prolific this year, as long as we get enough sun and heat to ripen them in time.
