Prunus munsoniana, Wight & Hedr. Wild Goose Plum. Figs. 3222, 3223; also Figs. 3076, 3077. A range of forms separated out of the old Hortulana class, of larger and freer growth than the variants of P. angustifolia, hardier, with larger and more pointed lvs., and larger fls. bearing glandular calyx-lobes: forming thickets, reaching 20-25 ft. in height: lvs. 3-4 in. long, lanceolate to oblong-lanceolate, rounded at base, at apex acute or acuminate, margins closely glandular-serrate, shining and glabrous, usually slightly pubescent on veins beneath; petioles usually with 2 glands near apex: fls. white, 1/2in. or more broad, either with the lvs. or preceding them, on slender glabrous pedicels; calyx lobes ovate-oblong to oblong, obtuse, equaling the tube, glandular on margin, mostly glabrous on exterior: fr. globular or oval, bright red or yellowish and marked with whitish dots, late-ripening; pit or stone mostly oval, pointed at apex, the surface usually roughened. Ky. and Tenn. to Miss., Texas, Mo., and Kans.—The botanical status of this group is yet doubtful, although well marked in some forms. From it have come many pomological forms, as Wild Goose, Newman, Milton, Robinson, Pottawattamie, Osage, Whitaker, Jewell, and Texas Belle. CH
