Beautyberry: Callicarpa 'Early Amethyst', 4" pot
PERENNIAL. Can we talk about these amazing purple berries please? I'll never forget the first time I noticed these plants walking around campus at UNC. Stopped me in my tracks! A fall color favorite, this one is a NC native and is very easy to grow. Prune it back every year late winter to about 6" above ground. Prefers full sun, could handle some part shade as well. We have ours in some soil that stays saturated when we go through a wet period and it does just fine, though most plants love well-drained soil. It'll come in a 4" pot and if kept weeded through the season will most likely form berries for you in it's first year! Grows to 3-4' tall and 3-4' wide. A must have in the garden. We've had ours since 2012 and they've been steady for us every year. PHOTO CREDIT: SPRING MEADOW NURSERY
