Those leaves remind me a lot of Oleander (Nerium oleander) but it's also similar to Gopher Spurge (Euphorbia lathyris)

I wasn't sure Nerium oleander grew in Washington state but I did find this page for poisonous plants of Wa. and Nerium oleander is on the list: http://www.sccd.org/Poisonous%...

Oleander wouldn't have inconspicuous flowers.

Ah! It is a salix. I thought the leaves looked like a Willow but it's a strange growth pattern for a Willow. Maybe just the way it was pruned. Thanks!

In what circumstances was this plant growing. What did the flowers look like and where were they on the plant?

Is that hoarfrost? Pretty.

Edited to add: I was going toward Salix but you guys had a whole conversation while I was outside with the dog.
