Nothing can rival the vivid colouration of the beauty berries fruits in Autumn, an eye catching bright shade of purple. In mid-summer the Callicarpa shrub is covered in masses of tiny star shaped lilac-pink flowers, these are much loved by bees and other beneficial insects, and once pollination occurs, the berries begin to form. The bright violet coloured berries have an almost metallic sheen to them in bright autumn sunshine. Produced in large clusters as the plant sheds it's foliage for winter, it retains the berries that clothe the bare stems which then become really visible in the garden.
For the best show of berries, we always recommend planting at least two plants together to ensure good pollination of the flowers and a heavy crop of berry. Callicarpa Profusion is fully hardy and easy to grow, performing best in a well drained bright position. Bushy and deciduous, it is suitable for borders where it can reach two to THREE metres (6-10ft) over time if left unpruned, it can however be trimmed after losing its berries to maintain a smaller sized plant or to neaten it up.
