This is either a large bush or small tree – about 20 ft tall and 15 around and second is about 2/3 that size. It is in flower now and the leaves remain year around Flowers are somewhat fragrant but I don’t remember the fruit unless it is some berry What is it?

    Chinese privet.

    Also known as devil from hell. Very invasive plant. Use bulldozer, dig up and burn.
