The evergreen plants seem to be popping up all over my shady backyard, but the leaves are not as spikey as the big holly trees growing beside my house. I have not yet noticed any berries or flower growing on them. These photos taken in mid-March show new growth is a reddish brown color. The leaf edges wavy with small spines.

    Also more aptly called Carolina laurel cherry, as it is truly a cherry, in the cherry/plum/peach family prunus, and only bears some resemblance in the leaf to a laurel.

    Without closeup of the leaves to tell more. For now I’m guessing this might be Carolina cherry laurel (Prunus caroliniana) (?). Check it out and see if you have a match. Click on images to enlarge from the included link below. Best wishes!
