Any suggestions welcome!
A woman gave me a cutting from a plant that she found discarded in the street. She has had it for some time, but is curious to know what it is. It is currently growing outdoors in a tub.
Photos are below, and information is as follows after I questioned her about it.
Current height about 5 foot.
Hardy, deciduous, with leaves that turn bright red in Autumn.
Has tiny, insignificant, white flowers, but no subsequent berries.
Forms bushy, but not dense growth, you can 'look' through the shrub.
The stems grow out at all angles and, as the last two photos show, have elongated 'growths' at the base.
