Grown for its clusters of spectacular berries that grace the plant throughout the fall and often in winter, Callicarpa americana (American Beautyberry) is a bushy, deciduous shrub with a naturally loose and graceful arching habit. Elegant with its long branches which seem to seek the ground, it bears clusters of small owers of violet, pink, or white along its stems in early summer. Although charming, the owers are fairly inconspicuous and not showy from a distance. Attractive to bees and butteries, they are however abundantly followed by clusters of glossy, bright violet to magenta fruits, which encircle the woody stems. These incredibly showy berries may persist after the leaves have fallen and stand out beautifully, if not completely devoured by hungry birds. Adding rich color and splendor to the fall and winter landscape, they make a lovely contrast with the foliage of elliptical, coarse, fuzzy, light green leaves, that turns yellow in fall. Easy to grow, Callicarpa americana species is native to southeastern United States.
