You can see the young walnuts on it in your pics.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Juglans_regia#/media/File:Juglans_regia_2009_G2.jpg

This is a single leaf of a walnut. It is made up of leaflets.

While willow/salix just have single leaves.

5. Please add a pic when it flowers.
Leaves don't look right for Golden rod.

Where does your friend live.
I assume it is somewhere tropical?

Goodness...how did you get to Cuphea ignea from that pic...without flowers how can you find what it is by Googling it?

The leaves of Cuphea are surely a very different shape."The leaves are small, elliptical and of a bright green colour....It is a tropical, densely branched evergreen subshrub." .

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cuphea_ignea#/media/File:Cuphea_ignea1.jpg



There are many many things it could be ...please wait for flowers and add further pics.

Agree it is not Leycestria.

Goodness...how did you get to Cuphea ignea from that pic...without flowers how can you find what it is by Googling it? GO TO THE GOOGLE STRIP AND YOU WILL SEE A PICTURE OF A CAMERA. PRESS THAT AND ADD YOUR PHOTO. IT WILL COME UP WITH A SELECTION OF PHOTOS THAT ARE THE SAME SORT OF PLANT

If it's as good (!!!??) as Google translate, then don't rely on it when trying to identify anything you think might be edible!

Thanks GG. My friend has moved to the South of France into a beautiful well established garden. She is not a gardener and asks me what things are. I wouldn't rely on Google for ID, especially edible stuff.
