Prunus eburnea is a species of wild almond native to Iran, Pakistan and Afghanistan . It is a dense shrub 0.2 to 1.2 m tall with gray bark. It is morphologically similar to Prunus lycioides, P. spinosissima, P. erioclada and P. brahuica. It can be distinguished from the similar species by having a pubescent hypanthium. A genetic and morphological analysis shows that it is a good species, with its closest relative being Prunus erioclada.[7] The cross of Prunus scoparia and Prunus eburnea produces Prunus × iranshahrii.[8][a][9]

Called Amygdalus scoparia, Amygdalus eburnea and Amygdalus × iranshahrii, respectively, by the source.
