Illinois Exotic Species:
jetbead Rhodotypos scandens

Jetbead is a poisonous, ornamental shrub which is native to Japan. It flowers in June and July, and each flower produces a cluster of four, shiny-black, berrylike fruits that stay on the branches in winter. This shrub grows to a maximum of about six feet in height. Jetbead has green-brown twigs and smooth, doubly-serrate, opposite leaves. It occasionally escapes from cultivation and can crowd out native species.
