Unidentified multi-stem shrub

I have a multi-stem shrub I need help identifying. No flowers/fruit available but has white bark that is "bumpy" (see top left corner), the stems are very flexible, all come out of a large woody base. Very coarse root structure, growing in full sun, sandy soil in orlando, FL. Approximately 9ft. tall by 7 ft. wide at the moment. Looks as if previous homeowner planted it. Thanks!

Possibly one of the Brugmansias.

RE: Unidentified multi-stem shrub

Certainly has a Solanaceae look about it. Does the foliage smell unpleasant? And could you show the whole plant?

RE: Unidentified multi-stem shrub

No unpleasant smell from foliage. Additional pictures are below (note that mexican petunia is growing beneath the plant in question and appears in the image)
