Definitely not Mahonia. It probably has its origins in tropical Asia...as this part of the garden in mostly tropical southeast Asian plants.

I was able to find a M. fremontii.. It's yellow...though. it was the arrangement of the leaves that made me instantly think of Mahonia...there are plenty of data on S.E. Asian Mahonia. Maybe it's a rescued endangered specie.

Lori:

This shrub isn't suppose to have yellow leaves...they're chlorotic. I think it needs a good dose of fertilizer. : > )

Next time I go Quail Botanical Gardens...I'll have to ask someone what this vining shrub is.
