Any help would be appreciated! This one's got me completely stumped.
Was thinking Ilex.. but haven't been able to find a match. I figured the indent at the leaf apex would clue me in the right direction. But nothing doing..
Encountered in a riparian area, Central Texas (Hill Country), Feb 23. Assuming it's evergreen...
Has the odd thorn here & there.
Open/spreading tree form.

Maybe a pyracantha, not sure what type.

That was my first thought too! Apparently it's considered invasive in Central Texas:

Nice!
Looks to be a Pyracantha koidzumii.
Thanks for getting me on track. I'd dismissed Pyracanthas early on 'cause I thought they were all bushes.
