From:Austin, TX Region: Southwest Topic: Shrubs Title: Identification of small shrub Answered by: Damon Waitt
Need an identity of a small bush, probably native . There is only a single limb sticking out of a large dense evergreen holly. It is deciduous, has opposite ovate entire simple leaves, and clusters of ovate fruit. Individual fruits presently about 1 cm or less long. The fruits appear black, but when viewed closely are a very dark blue. Fruits are in clusters, one to 4 or 5, on short thin pedicils at leaf axils. Sorry, I do not know how to attach a photo in this context.
