    The leaves and size looks like a lilac at my parents old home place. It was planted there about 1960.

    It’s difficult without flowers. It appears these woody trunks had been pruned back (?). with all lush new growths obscure the branches/stems, I can’t tell if these are opposite or alternate branching. I could only speculate from these round opposite leaves with the whitish stems & the lined bark trunks(?)maybe a type of honeysuckle? Check out the included links with various honey suckle plants with round leaves. Again, I’m only speculating. Please give us an update when this blooms. Best wishes!
