Aralia AKA devils walking stick...

Devil's Walking Stick (Aralia spinosa)

I used to have aralia in my other garden.... It drew pollinators like crazy.... And then the songbirds ate the berries.

If you really like the plant, there should be plenty of root suckers radiating out in all directions... Aralia likes to colonize... Think sumac and sassafras.
