A spiraea of some sort? Maybe someone will know for sure.

Cornus alba - a large suckering shrub.
My daughter has one that suddenly appeared in her garden after the ground was disturbed, and she cannot get rid of it!

Is she averse to using chemicals like glyphosate or is it illegal there?

I don't think that is any species of Dogwood (Cornus sp.).

Note that the suspect has toothed margins to the leaves. Note that the database images show dogwood leaves with entire margins, and that is typical for all dogwoods. Note the veining pattern of the suspect leaves; that doesn't match the way that dogwood veins head toward the margin but don't quite terminate there.

5601Lisa could grace this post with additional images of this vigorously growing shrub - starting with pictures of the WHOLE plant. Since plant parts aren't lacking, prune off a chunk and then photo detailed images of the finer parts where it is easy to focus on them.

It may be my own bias, but there is something suspiciously viburnum-esque about that plant...

Realized I was looking at two shrubs, planted too close to each other. May have both a dogwood and a viburnum that need pruning. More snaps.

Gee, even after having cataracts removed, I didn't notice the toothed margins on the leaves! Now that I've enlarged and zoomed in on that second picture, I do notice that the foliage has toothed edges.

That's Viburnum lantana, probably 'Mohican'.

Normally, that's a pretty prolific flowering plant. When has it been pruned, if ever? Might be cutting buds off, if pruning later in summer/fall.

Absolutely love this resource! Thanks all.
Btw, looks like both shrubs bloomed while I was out of town. Prune now? Or wait till Fall?

Prune now. Then, new growth in summer will set flower buds for next year.
