You can trim them as you need, will
spread low to the ground and take pruning nicely and has THORNS!!!!
(a pretty bonus has beautiful color is the Japanese Barberry)

Oceanside's climate zone is 24 according to Western Garden Book. As Weezie suggested, Barberry might be a good one. Look for MYRICA california/Pacific Wax Myrtle[zones 4-9, 14-24] evergreen shrub.
