Can anyone identify this plant?

We grew this plant/shrub from a seed pod which was given to us. Attached
are photos.
Some of the plant's characteristics:

Leaves have smooth edges and surface.
Small thorns are found on the stems and occasionally on the backs of the
leaves.
The blossom is very stiff and almost waxy - even more stiff than the
leaves.
The foliage dies back in the Winter (southern Alabama).

Any help in identifying this plant would be gratefully appreciated.
