This is just a common weed here. lol! :>)

Just kidding, it is a very common landscape shrub here, though. Was this one blooming?

I just remembered this plant very rarely blooms indoors, even in greenhouses (from what I've read). Not sure the reason why? I think it might need intense, very hot sunshine to bloom.
