Have had this for a long time. Just a bush the rest of the year but, in fall it is so intriguing and noticeable with its neon purple berries. I love it!
Purple Pearls® Beautyberry Callicarpa x
- Hardy Zones
- 5 - 8
- Mature Size
- 48 - 60 Inches
A unique beautyberry that lives up to its name - and then some! Dark purple-black foliage all season long, then late summer brings clusters of pink flowers and the amazing purple berries that make callicarpa such a desirable garden plant. Purple Pearls also offers a distinctive upright habit, which saves space in the landscape compared to the wide horizontal habit of other beautyberry. It makes an outstanding addition to fall floral arrangements and indoor decorations, too.
Plant in full sun for best color and highest quantity of flowers and berries. Purple Pearls® beautyberry shouldn't require much pruning, but can be cut back in spring if desired. In zone 5 and 6, the plant may die back to the ground in cold winters but will resprout and grow, flower, and fruit well that same year.

Really lovely foliage, looking forward to seeing the berries only in the late fall. Using it as a border to hide a chain link fence.ScottframinghamMassachusettsUnited States3 years ago
