    Thanks, Beth! I'm goint to see how badly intertwined the roots are and then try your potting suggestion. If it survives my horrible gardening skills, I know I'll find a place for it!

    This is an Oregon Gold Grape Holly. Wonderful Plants and quiet expensive. The need morning sun with shade in the hot afternoons. I had this plant and loved it!
