Jack,
If you are referring to the first pic, the plant on the lefthand side of the velutina, it is an ornamental peach. From my understanding, they are very short lived around here, about 8 years or so, and this is the first year it has developed fruit. I have had it for about 3 or 4 years now, so I need to try to get a replacement ready for the future. I really like it as it adds some color and texture to all the green around it...

Those 'Bonfire' peaches can be absolutely red to dark purply-burgandy. If planted in deep shade, they'll be more green.....but they'll fruit like mad!
I don't mind becaust the blooms are great in the spring!

Just an update on the banana I am trialing... Now has a total of 4 pstems. The one blooming is about done. The next largest is about as tall the the one blooming and then two small ones. One of the small ones is getting ready to bloom with only about 1 foot of pstem.... STRANGE!!! Take a look!!!

Pete, are these your velutinas? Mine are not doing nearly as well as they have in the past. Hopefully next year they will back to normal. The short one I just posted is of the ornamental hybrid I am trialing and have no idea what to expect!!! I am leaving it out to test this winter, and hopefully it is hardy enough to survive and come back stroner than ever next spring!!!! Will keep everyone updated to it...
