I photographed this plant years ago at the Dallas Botanical Garden. It was labeled... but the genus is no longer valid. It might have been absorbed into the genus Berberis... but I'm not sure.
Despite vicious thorns it was a very interesting, good-looking plant.

Thanks for looking

Can you tell us what it was labeled then?

Looks like agarita to me. Highly desirable native plant with delicious berries. They're harvested by spreading a cloth under the bush and beating it with a stick. The fruit makes delicious jelly. But those leaf-points are sharp!
