Q.Flowering Bush becomes very large bush after transplanting. What is it?
We had three bushes in the front that would get yellow flowers on them in the spring for about a month. I had to prune them often to maintain. Transplanted them to the back yard fence line, it took about three years for them to catch hold, in the last two years they are now about 15 feet in height, no yellow flowers but get very small white flower clusters on new growth in spring. Don’t know what they are?

It is difficult to see, as the pictures are quite small. It appears to be a type of ornamental privet, though. This can become quite invasive in many areas.
