This is a “volunteer” growing underneath a row of burford holly trees (allowed to grow to max height–now being pruned). Not a burford! Sharp spines…Chinese Holly maybe?
Bought this at a nursery. Fragrant in the spring. Catbirds have replanted it all over the property. One year cedar waxwings ate all the berries and then “redeposited” them all over my husband’s car!

I beleive I have these growing wild in my woods behind my house. I thought they looked nice so i added them to my landscape. Is this a bad idea?

opinions vary on its invasiveness. Some people use mahonia to deter burglars

I helped clear a small area last year in Stone Mountain where a “volunteer” plant of this specie was growing. It was gnarly and the trunk wood was bright yellow when cut. I thought it was some invasive plant and dug to the root and attached a chain to pull it out of the ground with my truck. In retrospect, this thing would be the ideal “intruder shrub” if it could ever be acceptably shaped. I found a few others growing wild nearby in the woods but still cannot figure out what the devil it is.
