Glossy evergreen leaves on a small 4'-5' shrub in the wild, growing on a bright, mostly shaded slope in close company with its understory compatriots Mahonia, Metapanax, Lilium, Disporum, Lysionotus, and a host of ferns. Burgundy winter foliage and single red fruit resting 1/3 of the way up on the leaf midrib.  Flowers small but curious.  This is dioecious so you need a male plant and a female plant to make fruit and these are unsexed.  Either are cool and once this flowers, you will know the gender you lack.
