Some of the plants on our property I have no idea what they are, actually most of them lol as I am new to even paying attention to plants. Not going to post all of them at once but will try to keep it in this thread. We are in NC just north of the SC border, Kings Mountain if ya wanna google earth it. This one I am attaching is a stand alone bush in the middle of the side yard, gets lots of sun all day long and looks dead most of the year. I have done nothing to any of the plants in the yard except cutting the grass. I want to start to learn to prune and mulch but want to make sure the plants are things I want to keep and know of their uses. Thanks in advance for any info on this bush.

That has me stumped.  Did it flower at any point?

no, have not seen it flower at all, just produces the lil' nodes in the picture. I have looked online and can't find anything, but looking thru the tons of plants out there takes time.

If you send that picture to Clemson Extension they will tell you what it is.  I would be curious to know as well.
