Veronica spicata red fox

Knowing the colour of Veronica spicata, (blue/mauve) I very much doubt if it comes in red. The dark pink you have seen is more likely.

Carex pendula, aka Pendulous Sedge. 

Invasive by seed and can get huge.

I always look at the bottom of plants before the top and pick the most dividable. I once took a saw to a weigela that had 2 main stems, right through the middle of the root ball, hoping both had plenty of root. It worked.  both halves grew

I have a theory that the world is held together by bindweed. It concerns me that people are trying to control this. It puts the future of life in jeopardy
