From Flora of Indiana (1940) by Charles C. Deam
Infrequent to local in the lake area and very local south of it. It is generally 3-9 feet high and grows in old tamarack bogs, swamps, and low woods. In a few places I have found it forming a dense and nearly pure stand over an acre or more and growing to a height of 6-8 feet. The species is variable in the shape, size, and juiciness of the fruit. The common form has fruit which is nearly dry and is smaller than the juicy form.
