What plant is this

Asked June 19, 2016, 7:05 AM EDT

We have this plant spreading through our garden, it has an extensive root network and we'd like to identify it so that we know how to get rid of it. It grows to quite a big shrub

Thank you for you response. Please see photos attached this time

Plants usually are identified by the flowers. If the geographical region the plant grows is known, it may be possible to identify it. Is this plant invasive or poisonous? Why do you need this plant identified? How long has this plant been in your area? Does it spread quickly into new areas? How tall does this plant grow? Have you seen fruit, berries, capsules or other structures growing on this plant? If so please describe. Any additional information especially a close up photo of flowers of this plant will help identify.l
