Q.Replanted a bush from the front to the back and it turned into a very large bush, 10′ to 15′ high. What is it?
When we bought our house there were three bushes in front. They provided yellow flowers in the spring for about a month and didn’t flower the remaining year. I pruned them each fall cutting back to keep them no more than about 3′ tall. After about three years I moved them to the back of the house. It took about 3 years for them to take hold, but in the last two years they have grown from about 3′ to 10′ to 15′ tall and do not bloom with yellow flowers. They get a cluster of very small white flowers at the end of the branches now. I don’t know what they are and neither do any of my neighbors. What could they be?

Possibly a common buckthorn. In some of the photos I saw the flowers were white and in some of the photos the flowers looked yellowish.
