Flies LOVE it though
Mirror bush as a common name maybe? Water Corporation of WA - Mirror Bush
I thought it looked like a Vibernium or the Venus not so fly trap.
Def not a viburnum.
Some kind of hybrid. See if it starts heading in the cooler weather.
There's an app called PlantSnap which allows you to take a picture of a plant and attempts to identify it. I've had mixed success with it (perhaps 50% close IDs), but it's free for about five identifications a day, so it's worth a try.
I put your picture into the app (a closer up photo is usually better) and the top suggestion was Chinese Banyan, which I suspect is not right. Further down the list is glossy privet, which it describes as having flowers which are unpleasantly pungent, which may be why it attracts flies - though I didn't see any flowers in your picture. Privet can be difficult to remove, and spreads easily through birds eating the fruit. I've had a few battles trying to get rid of it. A neighbour has it, and it often starts growing at my place.
Genetically modified cannabis.
Flies not highs
So it's not a useful plant, it's a weed?
But it doesn't look like grass.
Nor does a Joint
