Mystery Solved

My holly isn't a holly at all.  It's an osmanthus, family Oleaceae.  That's the same family as olives which explains the configuration of berries. It's supposed to be fairly difficult to get these bushes to bear.  Um, nope.  All you have to do is wait them out until they decide they're ready.  Mine took almost 20 years but aren't they pretty!
