Maybe Viburnum lantana, described as "escaped from cultivation".

If that is what it is, it is kind of depressing...this place seems VERY natural--lots of rhododendron, mt. laurel, blueberries, serviceberry, and lots more. I thought it was a beautiful leaf and was hoping to find it at a native plant sale tomorrow. Any chance that there is a native-look-alike?

Hobblebush (Viburnum alnifolium) has leaves 4 to 8 inches long, whereas lantana has leaves 2 to 5 inches long. Looking again at your photo, perhaps this is Hobblebush since the leaves are quite large.

Doing a search on the botanical name brings up some interesting information.

Thanks, benj. I hope that is what it is. I'll try to go back and get pictures of the berries later on (and flower--it just occurred to me I only have the leaf, so I'm guessing it wasn't blooming.

I'm exhausted and going to bed soon...will search through the search results another time. If you want you can always quote what you found interesting in this thread for others who stumble across it.

Does anyone else want to chime in and give their opinion on this one?

From this page: Viburnum leaves -- Viburnum leaf beetle citizen science. Your leaf resembles the hobblebush as it is very round whereas lantana is "football shaped."

Thanks for the link, BeeWonderful...and for giving me hope that it is a native...there are several that I saw there along the trail.

I agree with Benj1 and BeeWonderful - Hobblebush (now named Viburnum lantanoides). The veining pattern seems to match very nicely.

This straggly shrub has beautiful bronze-red or purple- pin autumn coloration and is used by wildlife for food and cover. Its branches often bend and take root, tripping or hobbling passers-by; hence its common name.

Cool. Thanks, NEWisc. I really is very attractive--even just in the form of its emerging leaves.

Now, I'd like to start growing some of my own.
