Hi everyone. Another mystery plant from my newly discovered, very old flower bed. These seem too "attractive" to be weeds. The main branch slopes toward the gound. Sort of like it needs to be staked? Guesses? Anything? Anyone? :)

Larisa is correct, this is an Silverberry (Eleagnus sp.) in the Silverberry Family (Eleagnaceae). There are many species of Silverberry, but this does look similar to the commonly planted Eleagnus x ebbingei, a primary hybrid of E. pungens X E. macrophylla.
