Its growing near many roses and hydrangeas in front of a house we just bought. But no flowers or berries as long as I have observed last couple month's. Location-wise it seems to be intentionally planted, and obviously well established (4 feet tall, substantial lower stems). Look not dissimilar to neighbors laurel bush but much more weed-like. The red stems have me concerned about pokeweed. Small dog and young kids.
We are in south sound region of Washington, and its early summer, and a dry one if that matters.
