The Agrila Texas is a native shrub of Texas. It serves as a great border or barrier plant because of its sharply pointed leaves. The branches of the Agrila Texas are stiff and spread out in many directions.

The Agrila Texas is identified by clusters of yellow flowers that appear in late winter. These fragrant flowers last until spring and have a great contrast against the gray-green holy-like leaves. The orange-red drupe fruits of the plant are attractive to wildlife.
