This appears to be a bush-type plant that is growing very fast now that I've cleared out shrubs around it. There may have been some small white flowers on it earlier this spring but all there is now are leaves. There are two of them. One of them has a flower "thingy" on it. One is currently about 8 feet tall, the other about 6 feet tall and looks like theywill keep getting bigger. the "limbs/stems" break off very easily. Any help would be so greatly appreciated. Cindy

I agree with Elderberry, genus Sambucus but not sure which species. Those are the largest elderberry leaves I have ever seen. Wow.

These are very fast growing plants. They are good habitat plants but a little weedy for landscaping IMO. The flower "thingy" will have berries that birds and people and bears, etc, enjoy. Depending on the species the berries will be blue, purple, red, black.
