Thread OP
I have two plants that I thought I knew the type but I can't find them on a Google Search.
The first is: American Wintergreen. Mine is a climbing vine, moderately invasive, in fall the leaves turn a bronze color and has golden berries. I had to have a male and a female plant for them to blossom.

The second is a burning bush. It is not the Dwarf burning bush, (I have several of those). This has feathery leaves and turns fluorescent in fall with several different colors. The berries look like the regular burning bush but are different fluorescent type colors.

Can't help with the Wintergreen, but compare your euonymus to Turkestan Burning Bush. It is in the plant database; sorry I don't know how to do a link.🙄 And, Welcome!

American Wintergreen aka checkerberry or boxberry is a common name for Gaultheria. It can be G. fragrantissima, G. procumbens aka Eastern Teaberry (this is the one used for the wintergreen flavoring and one of my favorite treats, Teaberry gum). G. procumbens is listed as a Minnesota wildflower.
Seeing close up images would be very helpful.

Really need good clear close ups to show leaves/flowers etc to be certain.

2. Looks like Rhamnus frangula asplenifolia syn Frangula alnus asplenifolia.
