Can anyone tell me what this is and is it worth saving? Desirable or invasive?
Thanks so much!

I'm not sure but it looks like a silverthorn, Elaeagnus pungens, bush to me. It's listed as an invasive species but I've never seen on come up wild in my yard and there are several yards close to me that have large bushes. Here's a link to more information.

Here is a link that might be useful: http://www.floridata.com/ref/e/elaeag_p.cfm
