I'm at my wits end.  I've spent two days now searching for the name of this plant.




I took it at the gardens on top of Isabel de Torres mountain Puerto Plata Dominican Republic.  I believe the plant is toxic or poisonous.

Any ideas, tips or clues?

I did email the tour company. 

But I am struck by the similar characteristics of plants in the nightshade family, like enchanters nightshade.  These are certainly toxic.  The alternating leave pattern and leaf shape.  The prickles on leaves of some varieties.  The variability in forms makes me think this is yet another variation of which there is no other picture on the web.
