What are these and how do I take care of them?

Asked May 12, 2016, 11:53 AM EDT

I need to identify this plant. I've got many in our yard, but I don't know what they are. I have to make sure my husband isn't allergic to them before they bloom.

I'm afraid this is Glossy Buckthorn. Please take a look at this information sheet to see of you agree:

These attractive bushes were planted as ornamentals, not too long ago. They have become highly invasive and these plants should be removed.
