Weed or native plant

Asked November 4, 2018, 7:57 AM EST

Can you please identify this plant. It is new in my rain garden this year. Don’t recall any flowers. It seems to be a shrub. Thank you.

It might be a beautybush (Kolkwitzia sp.), as it doesn't quite match some of the other species that have opposite foliage (Forsythia, Dogwoods, Deutzia, Viburnum). We will need to see photos of the flowers in order to identify it.
