I got some seeds last year as a free gift in with something I bought, no idea what they were and were mixed up. Only one grew and survived and a year later I have... a stick. It just gets taller but never grows any leaves! Any ideas what this thing is? Confused

Be patient.
Some decidious shrubs/trees do not produce any leaves until later in the spring.
It would appear to have a bud on it.
When the leaves do open please add a pic to this thread.

I thought the same thing.
It looks like a hardy hibiscus to me.

Interesting.
Feel the stick. If it feels square, you may have a euanemous (burning bush). They take a few years and a lot of pruning to make them look OK.

The stick grew new shoots. Anyone know what it is yet... seems pretty happy!

What fun. A lovely new plant from seed.
It does look like it might be a hibiscus. What growing zone are you in Charleym?
Can't wait to see if it blooms.

I'm in the UK (south) so no idea what zone that equates to... Blinking

Do you get freezing weather in the winter? I know the hardy type of hibiscus grow here in my zone 8.
