hi summer
it looks like a variagated poplar to me.if there is a big tree in your neighbours garden that looks similar to your new found plant it could be coming from a root of the original next door

Yes. Populus aurora, "Candicans". They do have an unusual cinnamon like smell, but they propagate from root suckers. You will either have to limit the root spread by spade, or by actually digging up the expanding root system and disposing of it in a fire. This tree is very vigorous, and resilient. As a Poplar, it will try to search out water, which could be your pipes. Be very wary of this plant unless you have a LOT of space.

Hi Guys. Thanks for the info on this. I got this Plant, from a friend of a friend, and they did not know what it was, so i just stuck it into the Garden. Now as i see from your reply's, i must move it, as it is only about 5mt from my house. As always, we can always rely on the good people of this Forum, for a quick honest answer. Many thanks again.

Hi Guys. You saved '' me,'' or ''somebody'' in the future, by giving me such great advice. I would never have thought by looking at this lovely looking plant, it could be so invasive. I was wondering if i planted it on my land, maybe 50mt or more from my house or other buildings, would it be ok, if not, i would have no problem in binning it.
