    We do not have a photo of the plant in situ. Said to be a "shrub" 3.5 feet tall and 7 feet wide. Minnesota plant.

    Arilia racemosa has alternate leaves, ie one leaf per node. So that is confusing me your shrub has opposite leaves!!! Are there any berries?

    Aralia is what I thought when I saw the first pic, so I'm good with that ID.
