I tried to put this on yesterday but doesn't look like it made it. So here it is and I hope someone can help ID this one.There isn't much I can describe that the pictures don't show. Leaves are strongly ribbed and alternating. New stems are red. Bark is vertically ridged and there was one old seed pod left at the end of a branch so it flowers at the end. I thought the pod looked like Crapemyrtle but the leaves don't look right. What do you think?

I thought crepemyrtle too, on your first pic. Is alternate OK for that? the pointy last pic looks funny.

Looks like a crepe myrtle.

The leaves in your first 2 pics match this pic of them :

and the seed pod definitely looks like a crepe myrtle

Thank y'all. I guess it must be a Crapemyrtle. We don't have any so I suppose some bird must have planted it for us in repayment for the hundreds of pounds of bird food we buy for them. We have 2 good big feeders and the birds can empty it every 2 days. We really enjoy watching the birds. We have several kinds of Woodpeckers, lots of Cardinals and Blue jays, Robins on their way south or north when they migrate. There are lots of Finches and lots of Sparrows and too many others to mention. The Cinnamon Doves are always around the ground picking up what the other spill and the squirrels are with then. And we get 2 speies of Hummers to the nectar feeders.
