Looks like barberry to me...

If it is, you dont want it in your garden.

I may be wrong though.....

Zelene is correct. Other reasons you probably don't want it is a rather sloppy growth habit and lots of little thorns that make pruning it an unpleasant chore.

Thanks much Zelene and TomH3787, this makes sense. I saw it in a garden bordering a busy street, probably a deterrent for folks looking for a place to sleep. Much appreciated! c.

There are dwarf, and various color varieties. I am not sure if there are non-flowering types (or varieties that do not produce seed).
