Help identifying these plants

Asked April 27, 2017, 10:25 AM EDT

Hi, there are three plants that I keep seeing in my neighborhood and I am wondering if you can help me identify them. I'm attaching photos. One of the red tree-like plant, another is the tall grass with purple flowers, and the other is the bushy plant covering the hill. Thanks if you can help!
