More IDs... chilies, tree and tropical (?)

I was on a garden walk this past weekend (what a great time it was, too!) and I saw a few plants I had to know more about. The first are these amazing little multicolored chilies in a vegetable bed.

The second is this little tree. I know I've seen it a million times and knew the name at one point, I'm sure, but now I just can't think of what the hell its called!

And lastly, this tropical looking thing was so beautiful and interesting.

Sorry for the picture quality. I took them on my phone and was obviously in a bit of a hurry.

Thanks again everyone!

The second looks like a Japanese maple. There are a jillion similar varieties; to narrow it down, it would help to see a clear photo of the leaves; also to know the size of the leaves; also to know the tree's habit (the shape it naturally grows); also to know the leaf color in spring and fall.

The third is a crocosmia.

I thought it was a Japanese Maple! I saw it on a garden walk so I obviously wouldn't know the color changes. It was pretty low growing and weeping but other than that I don't know. I'll have to just dig around and see what I can find.

Thanks!

First are ornamental garden peppers (got me on the scientific name). Second looks like my Red Laceleaf Japanese maple. Last, you have what appears to be red crocosimas. Right time for blooming and hummingbirds LOVE mine!

The last picture is a Crocosmia, 'Lucifer'.

There are a couple of multi-colored peppers that I'm aware of - 1 is Bolivian Rainbow...
