This plant has round or oval smooth edge leaves and the back of the leaves is golden. The leaf top is a dark green. Has compound leaves with a very sharp edge at the end of the branches. It was here since we bought the property and I have cut it to the ground as I think is a weed.

It looks like Quince -- Chaenomeles. I grow tons of 'em. But might not be. I grow at least 19 different kinds but I don't have one that looks exactly like that with the thick leaves and tan underside. Seems familiar but I can't place it at the moment. Maybe John knows.

The description below Of Eleagnus pungens is from this MoBot link- http://www.missouribotanicalga...

Elaeagnus pungens, commonly called thorny elaeagnus or silverthorn, is native to China and Japan. It is a large, sprawling, durable, broad-leaved evergreen shrub that typically grows to 12-15' tall. Young branchlets are covered with brown scales. Branchlets are usually spiny. Wavy-margined, elliptic to oblong leaves (to 3.5" long) are lustrous green above but silvery-white and dotted with tiny brown scales below. Small, apetalous, bell-shaped, creamy white flowers (to 1/4" long) bloom in axillary clusters in late fall (October-November). Flowers are not particularly showy, but are intensely fragrant (some suggest gardenia-scented). Small, one-seeded, reddish-brown fruits (drupes to 1/2" long) typically ripen in spring (late March-May). Fruits are technically edible, but perhaps best left for the birds.

Leaves are simple not compound.

Looks like Sideroxylon tenax.
Quote wiki......"Sideroxylon tenax is a shrub or tree up to 8 m (almost 27 feet) tall. Stems are armed with thorns. Leaves are up to 7 cm (2.8 inches) long, upper side green and sometimes shiny, underside covered with a layer of brown hairs"

No photos of Sideroxylon tenax in our database. That does look like a candidate.

It's certainly not Chaenomeles.

Thank you all so much. My plant is a sideroxylon tenax. Thanks Silversurfer and kniphofia. I will let it grow now. It is a Florida Native Plant.
