40.87242  -73.78489
Verbatim Coordinates: 40.87242, -73.78489
Description: A dense colony at the northern tip of Twin Island in Pelham Bay Park. I had not seen any fruit before and thought the colony might be an unfertilie clone, but the plants evidently produce seed. Since it is a very effective ground cover here, it may be an emerging invasive in this park.
