Purply houseplant

This was another plant foisted upon me by a near-stranger (friend of a friend) while I was protesting, but it ended up getting big and being interesting. I've looked at sets of houseplant photos for it, but haven't found it. I'm hoping someone will know.

Volunteer tree, my back yard

This tree is in its fourth or fifth year, having come up all voluntarily. This year it's flowered/blossomed, right out of a branch, and maybe there's enough now for someone to recognize it. It's about three and a half feet high, with purplish bark (as a baby tree), so I thought maybe plum? But the blossom doesn't look like plum.

2013 UPDATE!

The tree is five feet tall, has lots of blossoms. I'm putting the 2013 photos here:
