(Callicarpa americana)
Big, bold coarse-textured leaves on a large, gracefully arching shrub make this a highlight of a shady border. Clusters of big fuchsia berries along the bare branches add drama to the winter garden, as well. Beautyberry makes a great contrast to the smaller-leaved native coralberry, with its small but equally bright magenta berries. Can get up to 5’ tall and wide; soil should not dry out completely. Native to lowlands, creek margins and swamps across the south.
