Tamus communis   Black Bryony C DD N

Tamus communis whole Tamus communis fruit

This is a spring flowering plant with small insignificant green flowers and initially bronzy green leaves. It spirals up the shrubs of the hedgerows and then in Autumn and Winter produces this wonderful crop of bright red berries.

Tamus communis is proud to be southern. It is very common throughout England and much of Wales but stops almost completely in north Lancashire and Yorkshire and hardly sets foot in Scotland even in the south. It is rare in Ireland.
