    I don't know what type of plant this is. I have never seen anything like it before (but I'm not much of a plant person). The leaves and multiple stems make me think it's a VERY overgrown bush but it seems too large to be a bush. Any help you can give would be wonderful.

    One common in the trade here like this is sold as French pink pussy willow and may belong to the hybrid between Salix caprea and S. cinerea.

    Yea, I'm thinking pussy willow. It matches the leaves, stems, fruits, and height. Thanks for the helpful guidance.
