    I have 2 of them that I got last year but I forgot to label them, although on one of the plants there was a label for azalea but possibly I mislabelled it, it's evergreen and has tiny thorns, I did order Pyracantha and Cotoneaster last year around that time so possibly it's one of those, thanks

    You could look around your garden, and plant it where intruders are likely to climb into your garden. You never know. They are very popular burglar barriers! I bought 2 for that purpose. They have lovely berries and are a joy to look at in terrible winters. Cotoneaster is a good barrier to filter foul air. I am trying to propagate it.
