Hello to anyone reading this, My neighbour has a large deciduous shrub growing behind my garden, its about 5-6 metres tall at present and doesnt have autumn colour. It looks sort of like an ash tree with pinnate leaves but different bark, it only grows to about 6-8 metres high and I think it suckers, or it may produce stems from low down. Im guessing it is a non native ornamental shrub. I know for sure it isnt Sorbaria/sumach/laburnum/elder/rowan/regular tree-ash or spindle as I grow all of those myself. I cant seem to find its I.D. anywhere. I want to know the name of it before I go and ask them if I can cut it back as its shading out the back part of my garden where I want to grow a victoria plum.
Anyone who can help much appreciated.(I have tried internet browsing but cant locate it.)
