small tree identified

While taking a stroll through the Antique Rose Emporium's garden last week, we were able to identify 3 of the small trees in our new yard.

These colorful trees are 'Warren Red' Possum Haw, a tree growing to 20-25 feet, a deciduous version of holly. Song birds are supposed to love the berries.

When we arrived in January, they were fully leafed out in green; then the tips began to turn red and twiggy sprigs popped out. Now those sprigs have opened up into white flower bouquets. Sweet!

(The wee tree seen under the left branches is our baby fig tree.)
