A favorite for year.s. Purchased from an out of state flower show and have been looking for another. A definite “order immediately” for me. Gorgeous in fall arrangements.
The optimum amount of sun or shade each plant needs to thrive: Full Sun (6+ hours), Part Sun (4-6 hours), Full Shade (up to 4 hours).
This plant is hardy in zones 5 - 8

If your zone is equal to or higher than the zone listed for the plant, it will be hardy for you and thrive in your climate.

Don't settle for a beautyberry that only struts its stuff in autumn - demand one that does more. Pearl Glam® callicarpa is showy starting in spring, with dark purple foliage from the get-go. Late summer brings white flowers that yield violet-purple berries by the hundreds. Upright habit makes this a space-saver compared to more conventional beautyberry varieties, too.

Pearl Glam beautyberry does not need a pollinator to set fruit; one plant is sufficient for a good crop. Prune, if desired, in early spring, and remove any dead wood at that point as well. Plant may experience some dieback each year in colder zones, but it will resprout from the ground and still flower and fruit that year.Fun Facts:
Callicarpa is believed to repel mosquitoes, and the North American species, C. americana, has been used this way through the South throughout history.Pearl Glam® Callicarpa x 'NCCX2' USPP 28,312, Can PBRAF
