They sure all have a uniqueness of their own don't they? The first one reminded me a bit of Lambs Ear.
I loved the intricacies of the second one's branches.
The third one - well - I guess I don't have anything to say about that one. I can see different colors for the different stages of growth - but the branches are just ... bizarre -

Neat look into some new plants!

The second photo is of a Corylus avellana 'Contorta', or contorted filbert. They're sometimes called Harry Lauder's Walking Sticks. I have a lovely one in my garden.
