This bush sprang up right near a gray water runoff line. It is almost 6 feet tall now. No fruit or flowers or anything on it yet. The leaves a 3 lobed. They put off a mediciney smell when crushed and are rough like fig lieaves. The stalk is rough too and when rubbed with fingernail there is a reddish-pink fluid dye like substance that comes from it. Never seen anything like this. What is it?
