Can Anyone Identify This Bush?
I went to get cuttings from a very large Bridal Wreath Spiraea at the edge of an old school building today. I spotted it this spring and it was blooming and cascading beautifully and it is huge.
While I was there I spotted another large bush, about ten feet tall and at least that much as wide. Attached is a picture of the leaves, I didn't have my camera with me when I was there.
Both shapes of leaves were on the tree and the mitten-shape is suggestive of maybe mulberry or sassafras but I have both trees on my place and these leaves are bigger than the leaves on my trees by about double. These leaves measure 5" from tip to where the leave joins the stem and about 3.5" wide for the heart-shaped leaf and 4" for the mitten-shaped one.
I thought maybe American Cranberry but I have one of those bushes too and the leaves are not close enough alike.
Does anyone have any idea what this bush might be?
