Description:

This shrub has been severely cut back. It has opposite leaves about 4cm long some of which have extra lobes. The environment is partly naturally regenerating, but possible in this area things were planted. Sorry no sign of fruit or flowers at the moment. (It reminded me a bit of elder, but doesn't have the compound leaves.)
