scrub plum, Prunus geniculata

Does this image capture the scrubby disorganized habit of scrub plum? The species probably deserved better. It is endemic to the Lake Wales ridge of central Florida, and is federally endangered. Scrub plum may be the rarest of our 44 species of Prunus. Most of its habitat has been lost to residential development and citrus orchards. Polk Co FL, 3/17/16.
