Strange shrub in central Arkansas
This was planted by the previous owner. It used to be a little weakling but it really started growing once it got some sun and fertilizer. My next door neighbor says I should cut it down and replace it with something better but I've been letting it grow to see if it developed into something.
I've never seen any flowers. It has become top heavy and bends over after rain. New growth starts lower on the stem and tries to go straight up but the plant has a hunched over, weeping look.
What is it and does it ever develop flowers? Should I keep it or put in something else?
