Prunus murrayana is a thorny, deciduous shrub up to 5 meters (almost 17 feet) tall, forming clumps by means of sprouts formed at the base of the plant. Leaves are hairy on both surfaces, usually folding along the midrib. Flowers are white, usually appearing about the same time as the leaves. Fruits are red with white dots, hairless but with a waxy coating on the outside. It is purportedly so rare that no one has seen its fruit since first being scientifically described.
