Plant Invaders of Mid-Atlantic Natural Areas
Swearingen, J., K. Reshetiloff, B. Slattery, and S.
Zwicker. 2002. Plant Invaders of
Jetbead is an attractive shrub in the rose family (Rosaceae) that was introduced from Central China, Korea and Japan in 1866. It is a multi-stemmed deciduous shrub that flowers in the spring, producing attractive clusters of white, four-petaled flowers. Found in at least 17 states east of the Mississippi, it has recently come to the attention of land managers who noticed it becoming invasive in natural habitats away from intentional plantings. Once established, it shades out native plants in the ground layer and inhibits native tree generation. It spreads by seed and by vegetative means.
