Hello, hope someone can help...

When we bought our Glenageary house in June 2014, the rere garden was completely overgrown and unattended. I employed good tree surgeon to remove
13 overgrown pine trees and a huge number of shrubs. But I kept the fellow in the pictures below because he as different and obviously a blow in.

He is either shrub or a tree, grew tall hunting for light and life. The bark has a papery feel. Any suggestions?

Many thanks!

I cannot be sure...but it reminds me of Caragana arborescens 'Lorbergii'

Leaves as narrow are unusual.

I think our old friend Tippben may have a solution but you may like to investigate a eucalyptus variety. They certainly have a lightish papery bark and will grow in this country.

Not a clue I'm afraid, though I'll probably kick myself later.
