Fruit for Id pl
These are the flowers, not fruit, of a Stachyurus himalaicus. The leaves belong to something else.
Did not find mention of Pink/red flowers. Stachyurus himalaicus
Yes flower colour look different as per
One link which is not opening is given below:
I grow this purple-red flowered form here in the UK. It was introduced long ago into the UK and has been reintroduced since, in the last 20 years from the Arun Valley, Nepal. The Hillier Manual of Trees and Shrubs describes this species’ flower colour thus: ‘…varying from yellow to wine-purple or rose-pink’.

Celastrus paniculatus Willd. ??
But Fruit pedicel in net looks longer.
Please ignore image 0766.
Seems to be different …, Diff. Character…………Almost inflorescence terminal panicle only in C. paniculatus; as per images all axillary racemes.
Yes I thought so. It was just a guess. Any clue??
Seems to be Salix sp. Salicaceae.
Did not find any match to Salix sp.
Does not look like any Celastrus… Any Piper??
Does not look like matching with any Capparis.
Is it some Piper species ?
I don’t think it is piper.
