Xylosma flexuosa

Xylosma flexuosa, commonly known as Brush Holly or Coronilla,[3] is a species of flowering plant in the willow family, Salicaceae, that is native to southern North America and northern South America. Its range stretches from southern Texas in the United States south through Mexico and Central America to Venezuela. It can also be found on the island of Curaçao in the Netherlands Antilles.[2] Brush Holly is a spiny[4] evergreen[3] shrub, usually reaching a height of 1–2 m (3.3–6.6 ft)[4] but able to attain 6–8 m (20–26 ft) in height.[5] Red and yellow berries[3] around 7–8 mm (0.28–0.31 in) in diameter[5] are found on the plant throughout the year. It is sometimes cultivated as an ornamental hedge.[6]
