Dear Henry,

Yes.  it is forma neglecta which, according to Gray (Fernald), is
sometimes more abundant than the regular red form.  I think I have seen
it in botanical gardens e.g. Garden in the Woods, Framingham MA, but I
can never recall finding it in the wild.  Much of the land hereabouts
in underlain with granite so the soil is low pH and Actea of all kinds
seem to be endemic to the relatively few circumneutral soil areas in
here in Eastern New England.
