I'm interested in this beauty. It must be about 4' tall and it's the first time I've seen it and I would've noticed it if it was there last year. I'm by this place a lot getting my coffee drink.
It sits on manicured office park land. Landscape company unknown or I try there first.
I wonder what it is, and how it's propagated.
Thank you for looking,
Plant identification. It faded last week in southern NH
I think it looks like elderberry. You can grow it from seed; there will soon be hundreds of little berries, each containing a seed.
Best also to say that it is a tree... and both the flowers and subsequent berries make good wine - the former makes a very drinkable champagne-like wine in a few months.
You can get seedlings from birds eating the fruit then pooping them out in various places, but I bet you get suckers from the root system (it is a tenacious colonizer) around your garden beds much sooner.
That is the easiest way to propagate as well. If you get a chunk of the root system, you will sprout a new plant.
Yes, much more difficult to eradicate than to propagate!
I believe it is Queen Anne's Lace - Daucus Carota

The leaves point more to Elderberry (Sambucus) than Queen Anne's Lace.
