They look dead to me. If you done as advised and not let them dry out, get back to the GC and complain.
The one with the reddish orange tip looks like sorrel
and I think the willow is Salix caprea
Agree with Katherine, that could be a Lamium galeobdolen cultivar. It doesn't look like the native white deadnettle.
Also agree with gg

What did you have last year, (or the year before) that might have seeded? Or seeded from next door?
or a hollyhock or something else in the malvaceae family
