Nor me, and photinias have smooth leaves.
I suspect it's a lurking horror if it's coming back in land that has been cleared by a digger. The best thing to do would be to dig up some of the best specimens and put them in pots to quarantine and grow them on, just in case they turn out to be goodies.
Then you can go ahead and clear the rest of the garden and prepare the soil for planting real treasures, by which time, this one will have grown and be easier to identify and can be planted out or composted accordingly.
