I haven't seen this around our property before. These leaves are about 1 1/2 inches in 'diameter'. I've run it through several plant ID apps, but they all result in plants that have pointed leaves,and these are definitely rounded. Does anyone have a clue?

That reminds me of the currant family - maybe Ribes Cereum - afraid I don`t do apps :)

Thanks. I think the plant is too big for the currant family - aren't those pretty small plants? I'll bet it's a creambush. Looking at pictures of a flowering bush, I see these all over the place along the highway... just never had it here to look at it closely.

thanks again!

Ocean-spray or Cream Bush (Holodiscus discolor) is a deciduous shrub in the Rose Family. Various forms of this graceful plant and related congeners occur throughout British Columbia, the western United States and Mexico.

In my garden, I have large thicket of Holodiscus discolor, interplanted with similar native plants of the Rosaceae, such as Western Ninebark (Physocarpus capitatus) and Shasta Snow-wreath (Neviusia cliftonii).
