Help with shrub and grass ID

Title says it all we’re on two acres of land, and when working in a neglected part of the yard I found 4 random rose bushes and this unknown shrub. Clearly a prior owner at some point tried to do something in this area.


Here’s the grass. I’m praying it’s not a weed, but rather an ornamental of some sort. Same general area as I found the roses. The leaves are stiff and roughly circular (not flat blades).

Re: Help with shrub and grass ID

They both look like actual plants (not weeds). I have seen that bush in my parents' yard (at one point or another...maybe boxwood...but I don't think so...) The grass looks like maiden grass or chives....can't see it well enough.

Yeah that’s why I dug them up and replanted them in places closer to the house. I just wish I could figure them out. The shrub could possibly be a barberry if some sort but I’m not 100% certain.

Hanging my head in shame. - I was a horticulturist for 10 years...my degree is plant sciences. Money and time well spent, apparently!

Re: Help with shrub and grass ID

Could the shrub be a bayberry? Any barberry varieties that I’ve come into contact with have been a prickly affair and that one doesn’t look very thorny - although there could be less prickly versions (I don’t plant anything that fights back when I prune it lol).
