Decumbent or prostrate at the base when old. but the young growth, strictly erect and often reaching 5-8 ft. in height, the slender twiggy growth reddish and glabrous: lvs. narrowly oblanceolate, acuminate, short-pointed or nearly obtuse, the margins above very closely serrate, dull green above and whitish green beneath: fls. small, in 2-5-fld. umbels, the pedicels slender: fr. nearly globular, purple-black, on slender sts. On sandy and rocky inland shores from E. Que. to Man. and south to the District of Columbia; common on sand-dunes along the Great Lakes.—The fr. is small and usually scarcely edible, the flesh being astringent. The species is common on dunes of the Great Lakes. It is in cult, as an ornamental plant, for which it is worthy, although it is much attacked by the twig-blight (caused by the fungus Monilia). There are reputed crosses between this species and native plums. CH
