Maybe birds planted it but I didn't and would like to know if it's lythrum so I can send it to the dump. Thanks.

I think that it is not the lythrum,
lythrum - the stem is square, leaves sessile without stems I tip my hat to you.

If it's Callicarpa, I'd say it's a keeper!

Thanks to all! It is Callicarpa and I already have too many of them. I do appreciate all the help!
