Hello everyone;

Here is a picture of the plant (in the background) I would like to identify.
It grows in the NW corner of my back yard, very neglected and never needing anything except for occasional watering. It always looks amazing. It has elongated bright lighter colored leaves, and blooms with little insignificant flowers followed by red berries. It never grew over 3' tall/wide. I need the name so I can get more plants like this.
Really appreciate your help!

Yes, Skimmia. The one next door to here in a rather neglected yard always looks decent.

Have you noticed the fragrance of the flowers, imcheetah? It flowers in late winter here.
