United States, South Carolina, Richland County, Columbia
deep green, glossy, young foliage, the stems potently armed with stout thorns (to 6cm on sucker sprouts), especially on branches following pruning; seeds from the fruits have sprouted and survived; this plant was rescued from being discarded from one of the Clemson botany/horticulture greenhouses when I was a grad student there (1975), transported by car (in a different pot) to Columbia, where maintained at residence at 6511 Helena Rd, ultimately brought (1986) to residence at 3801 Duncan Street, at which site it was hauled back and forth (with considerable difficulty) from inside to outside and back, our mistaken belief that it was not cold hardy; finally left outside permanently about 2008, kept in sunny exposure in backyard; sadly, the severe cold snap (14-15°F) of late January 2014 seems to have killed it.
