The first two images are called Eunonymus grandiflorus, or "red wine". Grandiflorus simply means they produce a lot of flowers. The color is dark purple. In some images, this plant turns bright red, just like the burning bush. But I would want more contrasting colors. I love the dark purple but wouldn't want it to turn bright red.
Today I found a beautiful orange tree, also known as olympic flame. I do not know if it is a spindle tree, I sure wish it was one. I can only imagine the colorful grafts I could make with these trees. They bloom at different times of the year, the effect would be magnificent. I believe it is the Euibyniys Alatus.
We do have one evergreen tree, that will balance the grafted colors - if - and that is a big if I can successfully graft each species of tree together.
