You posted this question 2 days ago.

The thread "Virginia plant" in Plant ID forum

No responses usually means we need more information. Is it deciduous? Does it have flowers or fruit? Where did it come from (volunteer? Seed exchange?...)?

Anything more you can tell us? Like leaf odor when crushed, any others around the neighborhood, turns color in the fall....

I will be less polite than DaisyI...

Post pictures of the WHOLE plant! Tell us whether it has opposite or alternate arrangement of leaves along stems. Where is it growing? Did you plant it? Do you know anything else about it, like flowering, fruiting, fall color, etc.?

These are cues to how to post to a forum to assist those who would help you ID an unknown plant.

All that ranting aside: that looks like a Staphylea trifolia - American Bladdernut. Your images show what looks like opposite arrangement of trifoliate leaves. The "striping" of lenticels or bark characters along the stems is also an indicator of this species.

Help us help you by providing all the information you possibly can. We will tell you to stop, if needed.
