Just saw this plant in my mother's yard. I am not sure what it is. It appears to fit the criteria of Poison Ivy or Oak bush, but the red buds are making me not 100% sure. Can anyone tell me what this bush is? Thank you, that seems more like it!

Looks like Astilbe to me.

I'm having trouble posting a link.

I agree with astilbe, although it could also be aruncus, but I don't think any aruncus blooms red/pink, while a lot of astilbes do.

I also agree, it's an Astilbe, a nice ornamental perennial.

IDK, as they might have been helpful to others if they were still there. I could see removing a few, but not all.
