I have a row of bushes in my yard and I have been trying to find out what kind they are, but haven't had any luck yet. I wish I had a digital to show a pic, but I don't so I hope I can describe it.
It's mature height is about 6 foot, and it has small shiny green leaves in the summer. It makes lots of berries that go from green to a very dark red, almost black right now. In the fall the leaves on this bush turn red.
I'm not sure I like this bush, as it puts out so many berries and I have these little bushes growing everywhere, in my lawn, flowerbeds and one even grew in the scoria road.
Thanks for trying Paul, but it's not a holly. It has leaves shaped kind of like a birch, only smaller and shiny. I have no idea what it is. I hope one of these days I can borrow the digital camera from work and get a pic of it before the leaves all fall off. Maybe then someone can identify it.
Hi arptiger! I looked up poison sumac and that's not it either. It's not poisonous to the touch either. I mess with it all the time while digging out the volunteers and never got a rash at all. The leaves are shinier than the poison sumac too.
