    Link to another species, the Chinese privet (L. sinensis). Scroll down for more photos, click on images to enlarge. https://www.invasive.org/browse/subthumb.cfm?sub=3035&Start=1&display=60&sort=2

    Your shrub has opposite leaves, the branches appear to be opposite as well also with the light color trunks. These seem to match those of privets. Flowers will confirm or rule out the ID for you. If this is privet, I can’t tell which species this is. When it blooms and you still don’t know, make new post with flowers & fruits photos. Here is a link to one of the species, the border privet (ligustrum obtusifolium), click on images to enlarge. Best wishes! https://gobotany.newenglandwild.org/species/ligustrum/obtusifolium/

    Japanese privet would be my guess as well. Everywhere, invasive.

    Not sure. Crape myrtle?

    I am concerned that it might be privet. Anyone know for sure?
