Glad to be of help . Spurge Laurel is becoming rarer in the wild nr me Devon uk it is growing in a nature reserve which is managed to encourage it. Pot it up and give it to someone who would like it. Has green flowers jan/feb.

It looks like a rhodendendron to me, but I don't think Rhodies do berries....

Hmmmm. Doesn't look shiney or veiny enough to me to be a rhodie. And you're right, they don't do berries. @malynn: It might help people if they knew where you're from to rule out some plants

I am in Seattle. The mystery plant popped up beneath a tree.
