We had this deciduous shrub in our lawn for many years. Its height was about 1.5m - 2m. This photo is from a couple of years ago.
Strange thing is that this spring it seemed to have died. We reckoned to return that area to lawn. I cut the dead plant right back to its stump (thinking to remove that later) and turfed over the remainder.
Not long ago I noticed fresh growth from the stump. Is the full shrub now going to come back from the dead and be good as ever?
And can anyone identify it (either from the old photo, or from the new shoots?).
Here's the fresh growth (if you look closely, you'll see that the shoots are definitely coming from the original stump.
