Identification of wild shrub
The photos linked below are of a wild shrub growing wild on my property in Commerce, Georgia (USA). These pictures were taken today.
The plant is abundant locally, and is presumably a native species, but I don't recall having ever seen it before moving here.
Small specimens are numerous as an understory plant, especially in low-lying woods. Where they receive more sun, like at the edges of lawns and clearings they often grow to more than 10 feet.
What is it?
