What is this bush?

What is the bush growing just to the left of the rose bush in the center? I think it may be a remnant of the old garden that was pulled out two years ago, but I am not sure. If it's useful we can replant it.

Lonicera sp. perhaps.

RE: What is this bush?

a closer view might really help ...

honeysuckle seems about right ...

the other nightmare plant would be a burning bush ... which at this distance might be possible ...

but whats the different ... it obviously has great potential .. and nothing with said potential.. should be left that close to the house ... and i am not a fan of moving or saving things.. that gratuitously show up in my garden ... and i learned that lesson the hard way ... lol... you only have to be taught it.. 6 or 7 times... for it to sink in ... lol ..


RE: What is this bush?

It looks to me like Euonymus alatus AKA burning bush. It is invasive in NH as the birds spread the seeds. I'd get rid of it.

RE: What is this bush?

Thank you all so much. I was wondering if it could be burning bush, but there are tons of honeysuckle in the woods nearby as well. This space is only good for smaller plants, so out it goes.
