Found this growing behind a couple trees I had taken down, I've searched and searched but can't seem to find anything that looks like this online. Does anyone know? Thanks!

It's a type of Clerodendrum commonly called Pagoda flower. Very pretty, makes a nice sized shrub if you encourage it. But beware because it also seeds itself sometimes. Click on the blue lettering in the picture below to see more info about this plant.

Just a question, please. I have the Cashmere Bouquet (Clerodendrum bungei) and it is so darn aggressive that it would take over my yard and both my neighbors' yards if I did not keep after it.
I should say that the plant is so beautiful that I don't mind doing the extra work.

Will aggression be a problem with the C. paniculatum? Thank You!

Not sure, greene. It probably depends upon exactly where in Jax Melissa lives. If she's out on the barrier islands there, the seedlings might survive more than if she's inland a bit. It doesn't send runners underground like some Clero's I have (quadriloculare). So not exactly "aggressive" I guess.
