Thanks for the suggestion. The description says coppery brown and metallic green but these were darker so I'm not sure...

Thanks chesterbperry and NatralList for steering me in the right direction. Rather than Solanum incanum, I'm thinking it might be Solanum Eleagnifolium http://www.sbs.utexas.edu/bio406d/images..., but after digging a little I see there are several Solanum species common in Texas. So I might need to wait until the spring to better identify the leaves and flowers.

Not sure about hardiness - it never really froze in Houston this winter (my first in this house). But that's the fun of acquiring a new yard with mystery plants...seeing how they do over the seasons (or lack of in Houston).
