Unidentified plant

I need help in identifying this plant that I found in my backyard. The photo is of a sprig only, but it was about 8" off the ground. The roots have little bulbs like elongated tiny potatoes and the stems have tiny prickly thorns. I would really appreciate any help letting me know what kind of plant or shrub it is. Thank you. -Ella

Hi Ella,

You may want to post under "name that plant" forum. You'll need to provide where you live so we can help you. Not sure but it looks like an asparagus fern?
