Anyone know what this is?
It was labeled spicebush in the fall, leafless, but I don't think it's a spicebush. I have a positively identified spicebush right next to it, and while there are similarities, the lemony smell never occurs at all on this plant in the photo.
At the base of the plant, there is what almost looks like a graft. Here's where it gets weirder: below the graft there are some leaves. *Those* leaves do smell like spicebush.
Any idea what the heck this is or what circumstances might have led to its existence? I know the spicebush smell--it's unmistakable. This thing does not have it. (Edited to note--it's maybe four feet tall.)
