|I'm looking for an evergreen shrub, to 4'<> with thorns or spines that is also attractive|
|Holly is evergreen and the leaves are spiney; barberry and rosa rugosa are deciduous, but they have thorns which would keep people or animals away. I like barberry for all year interest. While it does lose its leaves in the fall, it produces red berries which give it some winter interest.|
Hope one of these suggestions is just right for your landscape.
