I don't think this is an Ilex vomitoria. It looks more like a Viburnum to me. Other photos you uploaded are these:

I've been under the weather the past couple of weeks and still in a bit of a fog. Since I'm uncertain of the exact identity, my photos can be deleted or sent to the bin of unidentified plants.

The only Viburnum I've ever grown is Viburnum odoratissimum; the plants in question were thorny shrubs that we removed from along a walkway at our old house. I'm pretty sure they was Ilex but we've had a few different Ilex on our properties over the years; Yaupon Holly (Ilex vomitoria), Dahoon Holly (Ilex casine) as well as East Palatka Holly (Ilex attneuata) but I don't remember which that particular one was.

Ha! Thorny shrubs do not equal Viburnum sp. of any kind, and not Ilex sp. either unless you are referring to leaf margins.

Those images belong - in my estimation - to a Pyracantha sp. selection.

Thumbs up That's exactly what it is ... Firethorn (Pyracantha coccinea)!

@Dave, thanks for moving my plants over to the correct database location; I meant to do it yesterday and forgot. Smiling

Glad to do it, and glad we got an ID on this! I should have known, I've grown this same species of Pyracantha in the past! *Blush*
