Dense, prickly, native, deciduous plant with new shoots finely downy becoming smooth by winter, purple in sun or green in shade. Many side shoots end with vicious thorns. Masses of snow-white flowers appear in March before the leaves. These are followed by sloes which turn from purple to black in autumn and remain intensely sour into the winter. Any soil, but will thrive on quite poor soil and also heavy soils.
