Notes:

I found this plant in the woods west of Savannah Ga. Main stalk has a lot of long thorns 2″ the berry is slightly oval not round. Thought it could be some type of holly. I don’t know if it is native. I was cutting small shoots to use making native american arrow foreshafts. A hardwood insert that goes in the forward end of a rivercane arrow. I thought this was interesting. Could you help identify this plant. I use sparkleberry and yaupon most of the time.

    I was going to argue with Walter and call it an Autumn Olive until I discovered that that name “Elaeagnus” is an Aunumn Olive (just harder to pronounce). Anyway, the fruits are edible and higher in lycopene than tomatoes!
