g us but doesn’t know what it is. I think it looks like a Lilac Bush or may be Wisteria? There is flowering on the bush but it hadn’t quite come out fully. It’s a long flower.

It looks more like pokeweed, which some people like and others hate. It is a good wildlife plant if you have room to spare, if not, it can take over your yard. The birds eat the berries and drop seeds everywhere that grow easily but have to be dug up. The plant and berries are toxic to humans. If you have kids around I would not keep it.
