    This plant is green all summer with white drupy flowers in spring. Now it is very red.

    Thanks, I'm going to ask some people at the Philadelphia Horticulture center.
    I'm thinking it is
    Itea Virginia

    Had another look; it isn't a spindle after all - on close checking the leaves are alternate not opposite as I first thought.

    Leaves too narrow for dogwood, branching habit different also. Itea is more like it. Might be 'Henry's Garnet'.
