Whai is this bush?

Asked July 31, 2016, 9:38 AM EDT

This bushy plant came in on it's own, i didn't plant it. It has reached a height and diameter of 2.5 feet. It spreads easily probably, there are plants all over the garden, too far away to spread by roots.
I have not seen it bloom.
The leaves are 3 to 4 inches across and resemble an oak leaf.

This plant doesn't look familiar to us yet. A photo of a branch, to show how the leaves attach and what the stem looks like may help. Also, is there a scent to the leaves when crushed? Are you able to pull out one plant easily? I'm wondering if this photo is of a big group of plants, or one bushy plant.
How old is the plant? Did it lose leaves last winter?
The bright leaves along the side of it don't look like the same plant. When you follow those stems down, are they separate?
