    Garden Spotlight-Beautyberry

    Callicarpa Americana -Beautyberry
    It  is a star at this time of year – but you probably don’t remember Beautyberry blooming.  The flowers bloom June through August but are insignificant. It is the fruit that makes this shrub spectacular! The flowers develop into prolific bright violet to magenta berry-like drupes which encircle the stem. These fruits remain attractive until severe winter weather.
    Growing 3’-6’ high and wide, this native plant prefers the soil of its natural forest floor habitat – a moist clay or sand enriched with organic matter. It will fruit most abundantly in full sun but may be grown in light shade. Once its roots are established, the plant needs minimal care.
    In the fall Beautyberry may be pruned back to about 2′ less than the desired size since the plant blooms on new growth.
    These North Carolina natives thrive throughout the Garden. For an up close and personal look, they are best viewed as you enter the Camellia Garden.
