can someone please help identify the plant in this photograph?  It bears red berries & am hoping it will look good for Christmas in the garden.

plus:  can you give me any suggestions for any other plants/shrubs to plant now for colour in my pots & hanging baskets at Christmas time?  to brighten up the season ?  

"Thankyou" so much -

I have 2 Flamingo trees in pots, one is 4 months old (new this year) ,the other 3 years old. Both have been splendid this year.  I want to transplant them into beautuful larger clay pits I have been given.  Can I transplant them now, in early October?  And can you advise me on soil preference as I will need to add soil.
