Observation - Garden_Bioblitz 001 - UK and Ireland. Description: This woody bush appeared in our garden 2 or 3 years ago and has reached about 1.5m. I came across a book in a bookshop which illustrated something similar, as a variety of common elder (but didn't buy the book!). The leaves certainly smell like elder.

I've never seen it anywhere else in the area. Does it occur in the wild?
