    My neighbor planted this shrub and everyone in the entire neighborhood loved it and I heard others ask them what kind it is and they didn't know since they said they were just randomly grabbing trees and shrubs. My heart broke when a new person moved in and cut it down but it was getting HUGE, even double the size of the pic. The most beautiful thing is how the leaves smoothly bent in the wind and it had a color changing look as the leaves would flip around.

    did it bloom? if you noticed flowers what did they look like? was it fragrant? without seeing the leaves better its hard to tell if those are single leaves or a compound leaf which will make it harder to identify without that bit of information.. were the branched curly or straight?
