  • I would take a sprig to a local nursery and ask them to identify it for you. That way you can hear from someone knowledgable whether its safe or not.

  • I don't see any picture and there is no description either. Kind of hard to do, though without anything.

  • OOPS! Spoke too soon...it looks like something from the Holly family--like Winterberry Holly

  • Yes, I posted a pic...I have a couple in my back yard and I have tried to find it online but can't find out the name. My concern is my 19 month old toddler, she loves to play with them and has tried to put them in her mouth. I have to constantly tell her no, no or remove her from that area of our yard but If the berries are harmless then I won't be so freaked out.

  • Ilex Verticillata- it looks similar to this, but again..not sure if the berries are harmful to my child.

  • Thanks LoriKeet...I think. I did look at your link you provided, but my bush's leaves look different, mine look more like the above pic.
