We are moving to a new house and I would love to plant this specific type of bush at my new house. Unfortunately, I have no idea what type of bush it is. They get tiny whitish-pink flowers in the spring and tiny reddish berries in the fall. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, in advance.

Thank you for the reply. Unfortunately, no. The flowers are much smaller and closer to the branch itself (instead of in bunches, extending from the branch). Hope that makes sense.

Our first thoughts were holly family, as well, but there are no pokey-type features on the bushes ... just smooth leaves and branches. I know there are a huge number of bushes/shrubs in the ilex family, so it may be a possibility, but we've yet to come across the right one.

Thank you for your reply!

Here is one possibility, without "pokey" leaves.
