Please can you identify this plant? I've been sent this picture by a friend. The only details I have are that it's about 5foot high with soft leaves
Thank you




A close up pic would help but try googling melianthus major for comparison.

That would be my guess. Ask your friend to rub the leaves and then smell her hand - it should smell of peanuts!

? Rhus that has been cut down. and grown up again from
the spread of the roots ?

My first thought was Rhus too but on second thoughts i think it's probably melianthus

Hi, yes I think I would go for melianthus major as well, the leaves just don't look right for Rhus, although very similar, Derek.
