Maybe Nandina?

My eyesight is not good but the growth habit reminds me a bit of Heavenly Bamboo (Nandina domestica)

I don't think its Nandina either. Have you ever seen it bloom?

Where does your friend live? There is something similar I've seen around here but there's a lot of difference between my weather and yours (well, maybe not this winter Smiling )

Now that I see those leaves close up, I agree, it's definitely not Nandina. It sure looks familiar though and there are so many shrubs with wavy leaves; Ficus, Pittosporum, Eugenia, etc. It would help to narrow it down if we knew what part of the country (or world) the plant is located or growing.

I can't tell if the leaves appear opposite or alternate along the stem but another one I'm thinking of is possibly a variety of Pittosporum:

I believe those leaves are actually pinnate - likely even bipinnate. So all of what looks like little side branches are actually the leaf petioles. I'm not sure what this is, but it looks so familiar to me for some reason. It does closely resemble nandina, but the individual leaflets appear to be somewhat toothed.

Throwing out a complete guess, but possibly some type of Sambucus sp./variety? How long have you had this plant? Have you seen any blooms previously?
