The Callicarpa bodinieri is wonderful piece to add to your garden as it offers seasonal variations that separate itself from other similar deciduous shrubs. Through the latter parts of the winter months it offers wonderful brown colorings, and quickly changes in the spring to a vibrant green.
In mid-summer, small lavender flowers appear which transition into intensely coloured purple berries. One of the most pleasant features is that these berries cling to the branches while the colder temperatures whisk away the now diminished and dry leaves of the fall.
The Beautyberry is a hardy plant and able to survive in most temperatures of Northern Europe. It is recommended to prune early in the spring before the onset of the new season’s growth.
In order to enable the best growth, the Callicarpa bodinieri is recommended for a location with full sunlight.
Another benefit of the plant is its overall low maintenance. After the first year of initial care and feeding, it will need only an occasional watering. They are also easy to propagate using soft or semi-hardwood cuttings.
For its hardiness and varying beauty, it is a winner of the Royal Horticultural Society’s Award of Garden Merit plant. The color variety through the seasons is inspiring, the fall/winter season with its bright purple berries contrasting with its brown branches, the spring with its vibrant green leaves and later with lavender flowers. Then finally, its leaves turn into a variety of rose colors in the fall which contrast with the purple berries.
