I ran across this beautiful fall foliage in Minnesota the other day. These trees are normally a burgandy to green color, but have turned red in the fall. Can anybody tell me what type of tree this is? They look to be about 4-5 feet tall and 3-4 feet wide, with no trimming needed. The leaves are oval shaped, being about 1 to 1 1/2 long. Some (not all) of the branches almost look like a stalk of Rhubarb, and feel sort of crispy to the touch. There are not any thorns on them, I've been asked that before. Thanks in advance!

Looks like a burning bush. (shrug)
looks like a burning bush to me also.
It looks like it could be a sumac of some kind - your description of the branches also sounds like it. A really beautiful plant in the fall.
I agree......looks like a burning bush.
They also come in dwarf size. They are a beautiful bush and even more beautiful in clumps of three or so together.
Does anyone know the botanical name for this tree please?
I'd love to put this in my garden. What type of area does the tree grow? eg, temperate, tropical, sub-tropical, etc.
Thanks in advance
My guess is the same as other posters.Burning bush.They look like the same bush I have planted around my house.If you have some leaves or I guess the pics will do take them to a green house for another opinion.
Looks like a Burning Bush, to me. Burning Bush is always bright red in fall. Those were great photos-it was easy to identify.
I thought I was right on the name of the bush. I just wanted everyone else to confirm it. ;-)
Here is all the information on what I can find out.

This photo was shot in Spearfish Canyon, South Dakota. I was crossing this little stream and noticed the color of the water. I was captivated by the colors from the leaves' reflections.
I love the way the colors blended in the tops of the trees. This was taken on a city street.

I was admiring the fall foliage while waiting for a bus in my town. The turning of the leaves doesn't last long here but when it happens it's quite beautiful.
As I was walking through the forest at Rockwood Park, I came along this place. I went back home grab my camera. I came up with this one, my favorite.
Those vibrant colors transport you to a peaceful place with in your heart.
A friend asked me to come over to his house about 4:00 in the afternoon. This was in the fall and the trees were in full color. The sun was on the trees and the reflection in the water was beautiful!
One thing I love about living in North Carolina is we get to enjoy the 4 seasons. However, I have had enough hot humid weather and I am so looking forward to cooler days and fall colors.
The lighting was perfect reflecting off the leaves in the front. I love photgraphing fences. This looks amazing with the water!
This is a photo taken of the Western tip of the Adirondack Park.
We have been camping in this park all summer. Its a bitter sweet moment when the fall comes in Canada. Campers are few and the weather is turning cool at night. The true beauty to look forward too, is the changing colors of the trees.
In the complex I live in here in Salem, OR, I came upon a magical sight!

Chandler Park is a park that sits right on top of one of the few high hills in Tulsa. It's surrounded by woods and rocky cliffs popular with climbers, it's like being in a forest inside the city.
The red tree in the photograph is a dogwood that me and two of my children planted back in the 80s. It has provided many memories for us as I 'forced' them to help me dig it from the woods and plant it in our landscape.

I took this fall foliage reflecting in a pond during our family trip to a place of worship.
I love this time of year in West Virginia. The colors of fall are so beautiful. I almost waited too long to take fall pictures. This is past their peak, but still beautiful.
This is my maple tree in my front yard with all the colors changing.
When entering the town of Warrenton, NC, you will see many beautiful old colonial homes. If it happens to be October, this maple tree will surely catch your eye.
This is one of my favourite fall garden pictures. I've used this and a couple of other garden views as computer wallpaper all winter. They've perked me up on those snowy days!
