Berberis … ???

Probably Berberis darwinii.

I agree Berberis sp.
However it is definitely not Berberis darwinii… one I have grown and is very common locally
Which has tiny, angular leaves, that resemble holly and  orange flowers on clusters…see my images.
I have been trying to work out which one mystery one is, as we grow many different ones in UK.
I am not positive which one  it is….. maybe Berberis candidula?
Evergreen, With long thorns, sparce  pale yellow  flowers and leaves that have a few prickles on the margin./pointed tip

Berberis candidula C.K.Schneid. seems to be a close one !
