Q.I’m trying to find out what shrub/tree? Suddenly started growing
I live in southeast AZ and had 3 40 ft Australian Bottle trees removed last Nov. by May a thick plant was growing. Now it’s approx. 4 ft and my sister told me it’s a Kurrajong tree? Earlier a nursery told me it’s a shrub of some type was probably dormant in the ground when these huge trees shaded the area. How can I find out what this is? It’s growing next to an Ash tree we put in after the 3 trees were removed.

The foliage does not look like a KURRAJONG, which is a bottletree native to Australia. I would check out any native plant guides first for your area. You can often find those online and you may get lucky and find your plant. Are you sure it isn't one of the trees you removed coming back? They can easily return if all the root wasn't removed.
