Is this a weed? New to the area!
I just moved to South Carolina and have noticed these strange bushes sprouted up all over our property. They have a stretch of bare, spindly trunk, then a bunch of shiny, stiff, flat leaves that vaguely remind me of holly, and a strange asparagus-like growth coming out of the top of the bunch of leaves.
At first I thought they were some kind of holly bush, which we also have on the property, but I've noticed them growing in places where one finds weeds, like out of the side of a low rock wall.
Anyone know what it is? Thanks!
