They're not small, a metre or more in all directions. 

Plant ID please

The night shade will seed and unless you have a big garden one is plenty. It's poisonous, the berries at least, possibly other parts.

Phytolacca is another large plant that seeds about the garden. Enormous roots but not invasive by roots, just by seed. More poisonous berries.

I may be wrong on the phytolacca, mine are nowhere near flowering but there are other species that might be earlier. Mine is P.americana according to its label. I have seen others that aren't quite like mine with the same label.

See what other people think

Plant ID please

2. If it's seeded itself there and is more leaf than flower, it will be Solanum dulcamara, woody nightshade or a long string of other common names. The leaves and stems of this one have a very fusty smell when bruised.

If there are lots of flowers and it's been planted, Solanum crispum 'Glasnevin is more likely.

3.looks like one of the phytolaccas.

 

Pine needle cascade???

When you say dropped all the needles do you mean it was completely bare til the new ones at the tips started growing?

That would not be normal.

Turning brown overnight?

You could cut the flowers off but I wouldn't cut back the leaves.
