Wild Plum agg. - Prunus domestica agg.
Stace places plums, damsons, bullaces and greengages under P. domestica, but notes that "they have been so much hybridised that character-correlation has partly broken down and the subspecies are scarcely discernible." We have decided to treat Prunus domestica as an aggregate to include subspecies such as subsp. insititia, subsp. italica and subsp. domestica.
Woodlands and hedgerows often found close to habitation.
Flowers in April and May.
Widespread in Britain except in the far north.
Occasional, though possibly under recorded in Leicestershire and Rutland.
