Insight into Black Bryony (Tamus communis): the only British member of the tropical yam family (Dioscoreaceae), its stems reach to over 20 metres. Plants have either male or female greenish yellow flowers but both are rather inconspicuous and its the bright red waxy fruit in autumn that gets noticed.
The whole plant is poisonous.
