Features

notes
Beauty Berry, the colloquial name for Callicarpa bodinieri Profusion, stems from the vibrant purple berries, resembling shiny beads, that appear in dense bundles in autumn. The attractive, lanceolate leaves of this upright, deciduous shrub, emerge a bronzed purple, turning to green in the summer, when the clusters of small pink flowers appear, and changing to golden purple in autumn.
Insights
