The Bullace differs from the Sloe in having brown
bark, the branches straight and only a few of
them ending in spines, the leaves larger, broader,
more coarsely toothed, and downy on the underside.
The flowers, too, have broader petals, and the
fruit – which may be black or yellow –
droops, and is about three-quarters of an inch
In many places where the Bullace grows it can
only be regarded as an escape from cultivation.
