I went out as ordered to try take pictures of the 'small dormant parts'.
Not having a clue what small dormant parts are, I winged it as best I could.
Here are some mid-winter pictures of the mystery plant.
#1 is plant habit.
#2 the multistemmed trunk.
#3 seed capsules.
#4 terminal bud.
#5 side branch buds.
(I don't really know if those terms are correct, but they seemed apt to me.)
I didn't see any other structures that might qualify as small dormant parts,
so I hope these images will be adequate.
