Could this be Pride of India (Crepe Myrtle)?
If so, there would be or has been recently a larger plant within a few metres - the growth comes from the roots when the soil is disturbed.
Hope this helps,
Charlie A

Lagerstroemia /ˌleɪɡərˈstriːmiə/,[1] commonly known as crape myrtle[2][3] (also spelled crepe myrtle or crêpe myrtle), is a genus of around 50 species of deciduous and evergreen trees and shrubs native to the Indian subcontinent, southeast Asia, northern Australia, and parts of Oceania, cultivated in warmer climates around the world. It is a member of the family Lythraceae, which is also known as the loosestrife family. The genus is named after Swedish merchant Magnus von Lagerström, a director of the Swedish East India Company, who supplied Carl Linnaeus with plants he collected. These flowering trees are beautifully colored and are often planted both privately and commercially as ornamentals.
