I have a plant in my garden & I don't know what it is. We bought it last year & my partner threw away the information.

That looks a lot like the Black Lace Elderberry!

It sure does!
My guesses were going to be mugwort and Eupatorium x pinnatifidum... But I wasn't able to find them on google with purple leaves...

My guesses wouldn't have made good foundation plants anyway...
