Hey Everyone,

Does anyone know what type of plant this is? I'm in the Raleigh, NC area. I can't seem to figure it out. Thanks!

The flowers look like Melia azedarach,.....commonly known by many names, including chinaberry tree, Pride of India,bead-tree, Cape lilac, syringa berrytree, Persian lilac, and Indian lilac.
However not sure that the leaves are a match.

Those are not chinaberry tree leaves, but I have no alternative suggestion.

Post more pictures! Start with the whole plant, a basic beginning.

Then, pictures showing how the leaves attach along the stems, and then flowers, then fruit, then bark/trunk, etc.

Excruciatingly clear closeups are the last in the order.

Thank you Silversurfer!!! I looked at the leaves up close and they are the same, just slightly immature so the scalloped edges aren't as pronounced. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
