Shrub Identifications

Zone 13078 | kellyeden added on March 22, 2020 | Answered

We live in Central New York. We’re tryiny to identify a shrub we assume to be native, found often around streams, but grows very well in our yard, away from water. In the early spring the woody stems have Pink flowers that gradually turn to red berries in the summer. It has small, dark green leaves until fall, when they turn a beautiful red-orang before dropping. It can spead easily. Thanks for any help! You site and newsletters are some my very favorites.😊
