There is a Mahonia philippinensis. My Oregon grape holly, M. aquifolium, sends regards.

To clarify: Mahonia, grape holly, is not a holly and is not related. Mahonia belongs to the barberry family. I have never heard of the hardy true hollies (or the hardy Mahonias either) being used for bonsai. Are there any examples?

Please be specific. Which plant do you mean, Mahonia or Ilex? Where in the USA are you? If you mean Mahonia aquifolium, our Oregon grape holly, it takes part shade. I suggest you plant it in the ground & let it grow.

There are several species and hybrids of Mahonia in France. They are all pretty much alike, except some of the cultivars have big flower clusters.
M. aquifolium has muscled its way in over there, and is considered an invasive weed. Here in the Northeast US, this species turns up occasionally and is well behaved. The birds eat the berries. There is also an eastern species, M. repens, but it is not as attractive.

You guys in the tropics really throw us a curve ball when it comes to identifying your trees.

Mahonias have pinnate leaves with opposite leaflets usually in whorls on the tops of stems like Nandina, another member of the barberry family (Berberidaceae). From your pictures I see zig-zaggy twigs with alternate leaves and a thorn at the node. Not a Mahonia, at least like any I've seen, but could be a barberry of some type - or in that family. Then again, this could be way off. Also, I don't think it's an Ilex - never seen one with thorns along the stem, just spiney leaves.

Is the wood yellow?
