Notes:

We have had this plant in one of the semi wild (HA!) parts of our mostly wooded five acre spread since at least 2006. There several plants about two feet tall covering an area maybe 20 square feet. They are situated around some pine trees that is never cut trimmed or mowed and come back every year. Leaves are dark green and sparse. The spikey red balls turn from green to bright red and later expose a single bright red berry. I have been looking on the web but don’t really know which family it is
